Abstract

The endangered snail kite (Rostrhamus sociabilis) feeds primarily on the freshwater apple snail (Pomacea paludosa) in Florida. The nonindigenous, floating water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) and water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes) impede kites from finding snails. Effective control of these aquaticplants in the littoral zone of central and south Florida lakes benefits kites by maintaining open foraging habitat. However, incidental herbicide Spraying of nesting substrates result in nest collapse when kites breed in nonwoody, emergent plants [cattail (Typha sop.) and giant bulrush (Scirpus validus)] in the outer littoral zone during lower lake levels. Many endangeredspecies recovery plans and their implementation have experienced problems due to inaction and/or noncooperation by various governmental agencies and their personnel. Herein, we describe the development and implementation of a buffer zone strategy to prevent secondary impacts from an aquatic plant control program to snail kites nesting on lakes in central and south Florida. A strategy was jointly developed by personnel of five state and federal agencies to control herbicide application near kite nesting areas during thenormal breeding season. Although requiring various modifications during its implementation; this cooperative effort successfully integrated aquatic plant central objectives with snail kite conservation on Lake Okeechobee during 1988. The program was expanded the following year to lakes Kissimmee and Tohopekaliga. Since the implementation of the snail kite impact preclusion program, no nest loss was attributed to incidental herbicide applicationson lakes Okeechobee, Kissimmee, and Tohopekaliga.
