The U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce proudly announces a new affiliation with the enterprising environmental organization, Imagine Our Florida, Inc. (IOF), who recently joined as a non-profit member.
“I am pleased that Imagine Our Florida, Inc. is joining a nationally recognized organization who is forward thinking in our role as environmental stewards,” says IOF President, Nancy Kon. “We look forward to the valuable connections we will make with like-minded businesses within U.S Green Chamber.”
Imagine Our Florida, Inc. was formed to bring people together in a shared vision to preserve and protect Florida’s wildlife, habitat and ecosystem. They accomplish this via science-based education for all ages, and the development of appreciation and respect for the natural world and our place within it. IOF’s goal is to foster the connection of people with the natural world that surrounds them, encouraging respect for earth and all its inhabitants.
IOF’s mission to preserve and protect Florida’s natural resources, wildlife, and lands began with a group of 100 volunteers who were summoned to help monitor the Florida black bear hunt in October 2015, after attempting to stop the first bear hunt in 21 years. Due to the extensive documentation of each bear brought into various hunt check stations throughout the state, the hunt was stopped in a mere two days. This catastrophe united the organization to work towards educating people on how to be effective advocates on behalf of Florida’s iconic black bears and their habitat.
