Abstract

George E. Henderson received his bachelor's in natural sciences from the University of Pennsylvania and his master's degree in zoology from the University of Massachusetts. After graduation, Henderson moved to St. Petersburg, Florida and has spent the past several decades working at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC). In this interview, Henderson talks about his time working with the FFWCC, his role in several multiagency work groups, and the importance of utilizing scientific principles to guide environmental and developmental activities. Henderson discusses several environmental challenges Tampa Bay has faced, including oil spills, hazardous substance releases, increasing population density, habitat destruction and water pollution. He also provides several examples of successful conservation efforts including manatee protection zones, a state constitutional amendment to limit marine net fishing and wastewater treatment plant regulations. Henderson concludes his interview by discussing future environmental challenges to the bay area.
