Help Us Make a Difference for People and Nature in Florida
For more than 60 years, we have been working to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends in Florida. We have helped protect more than 1.2 million acres of vulnerable lands and waters in Florida, and we own and manage more than 40,000 acres including four preserves that are open to the public. Led by science and data, we are building coalitions and constituencies, demonstrating leadership and influencing policy across the state.

Florida's Conservation Priorities
Our core strategies address the greatest threats to Florida’s nature and people, focusing on areas where we are uniquely positioned to make the most significant contribution to Florida’s future.
Building a Sustainable Florida
Collaborate with diverse stakeholders across sectors to shift the narrative of development in Florida from built environments that harm and disconnect people from nature to areas that invite nature, promote biodiversity and movement of wildlife. Learn about our sustainable communities work.
Transforming Marine Management
In collaboration with stakeholders, we will strengthen the sustainability of Florida’s fisheries through new and revised policies, modernization of fisheries data systems, and pilot projects to encourage fishing best practices for ocean health. Learn about our fisheries work.
Conserving Resilient Lands, Oceans and Waters
Conserving a network of resilient and connected lands, oceans and waters is critical for carbon sequestration and for preserving biodiversity, by creating a connected landscape for wildlife to move and adapt to a changing climate. Learn about our work to help protect the Florida panther.
Inspiring Climate Action
To limit global warming to less than 1.5 degrees C, we must ensure that ambitious state and federal greenhouse gas emissions reduction policies are enacted by broadening support for climate action among Florida’s citizens and policymakers. Learn about our climate action work.
