The National Audubon Society has identified the Everglades as a national conservation priority and a centerpiece of Audubon’s hemispheric water strategy. One of the greatest challenges to the health of the Greater Everglades Ecosystem is the historic ditching and draining of the landscape, which causes water to rush through the system faster and dirtier than it would have historically. As a result, it is a high priority to implement projects that hold and clean water—especially at the top of the system near Orlando, in the Okeechobee Watershed. While engineered projects can meet these needs, rehydrating historically drained wetlands, especially on private lands, can help hold and clean water, provide wildlife habitat, and present revenue opportunities for ranchers and other private lands that contribute to their economic viability.
Restoring and rehydrating historically drained wetlands—often through partnerships with private landowners--is one of the best opportunities for holding water in the region and increasing groundwater recharge. Audubon has developed a GIS tool that identifies and prioritizes locations within the Central Florida Water Initiative region where both surface water storage and groundwater recharge would have the greatest potential gains from restoration activities.
Aligned with Audubon’s Policy and Everglades teams, the Wetland Restoration Specialist will introduce the tool and its capabilities to local entities, including Water Management Districts, local governments, and private landowners, catalyzing the funding and development of water storage and wetland restoration projects in the portion of the CFWI that intersects with the Okeechobee Watershed and the Greater Everglades ecosystem. Relationship building with agency funders, regulators, and private landowners is a cornerstone of this work. This project may be expanded into other regions of Florida experiencing their own water resource challenges.
This is a remote position, located in the Orlando region, with regular travel anticipated throughout the Okeechobee Watershed.
