Sanibel official, area journalist to join SCCF team

The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation announced that two leaders in Southwest Florida water quality issues will deepen and expand the non-profit's work to restore and protect the region's waterways.

Starting on Sept. 8, Sanibel Natural Resources Director and Chad Gillis, environmental reporter with the Naples Daily News and News-Press, will lead policy and advocacy work at the Sanibel-based non-profit.

"James and Chad each bring 20 years of expertise in Southwest Florida's environment to SCCF," Chief Executive Officer Ryan Orgera said. "Individually these professionals would be extraordinary additions to our team, but when combined, SCCF benefits from a supercharged policy team."
