Dan Chapman is a public affairs specialist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He has visited the Lower Suwanee and Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuges several times recently to learn about our refuges and tell their stories to a wider audience of naturalists and nature lovers.
In December, he visited Atsena Otie with Deputy Refuge Manager Larry Woodward and University of Florida archaeologist Ken Sassaman. His story is told here: "Rising Seas threaten history, culture of Florida wildlife refuge."
