Altman solution to conserving Florida's biodiversity is to get people involved and excited by showing them plans for large, noticeable change.
Gary R Knight also made many valid points about how important the conservation of Florida's biodiversity is to us because our economy is extremely depended on our tourism, and a major attraction that brings travelers to Florida is our ecosystem.

But we don't need to keep developing, our beaches and other natural landscapes bring in people and money. the existence of a wide variety of plant and animal species in their natural environments, which is the aim of conservationists concerned about the indiscriminate destruction of rainforests and other habitats
