Do you have an old cell phone or other electronic items that need to be recycled? You can stop by WFIT Broadcast Center and drop them off.                           

WFIT has partnered with The Wireless Alliance, a cell phone and electronics recycling company who will make sure that equipment is repurposed in a zero waste, environmentally-conscious manner.

Black bears and panthers are two of Florida’s imperiled wildlife species. Both are facing a daunting obstacle to their survival: habitat fragmentation caused by development like roadways, subdivisions and shopping malls. By isolating habitats, human expansion jeopardizes genetic diversity in wildlife populations. Disease and hereditary defects are often the result.

The Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival is a bird and wildlife lover's paradise. The weather couldn't be nicer here this time of year in Florida.
