We have protected over 25,000 acres since 1999, and, as the demand and urgency grows to protect Florida’s irreplaceable conservation lands, we are ramping up our pace. We are now leading conservation projects totaling over 178,485 acres.
Our projects stretch from the Florida panhandle to the Everglades and are guided by scientific research that identifies areas of highest priority.
We work with private landowners in rural communities to protect Florida’s family farms & ranches, protecting not only green space and habitat, but a piece of Florida’s heritage.
With a focus on connectivity and landscape scale conservation, we have a bold plan. We aim to connect existing conservation lands throughout Florida.

From the Everglades to the Panhandle! Our projects span entire regions – connecting large conservation properties together like a vast jigsaw puzzle. The interconnected properties are owned and managed by various people and agencies that collaborate to achieve specific objectives for that region.
Connectivity preserves wildlife habitat and gives wide-ranging animals like Florida black bears and panthers the territory they need to survive and thrive. We call it “room to roam.”
