As a result of pollution and hydrological degradation and alteration to local coastal watersheds, the Charlotte Harbor Flatwoods Initiative (CHFI) was formed to initiate efforts to restore natural drainage across the Gator Slough Watershed with water that has been unnaturally impounded on the Fred C. Babcock–Cecil M. Webb Wildlife Management Area (Babcock-Webb WMA) and diverted from the Yucca Pens Unit WMA, Caloosahatchee River, and tidal creeks to Charlotte Harbor.
The FWC has developed A Management Plan for Fred C. Babcock-Cecil M. Webb Wildlife Management Area 2014-2024. The plan was approved by the Division of State Lands, Office of Environmental Services on February 16, 2015. (The appendices to the report are listed in the Documents section below.)
