We are Conservation Florida
Recent name change puts greater focus on conservation
You may have noticedthere’s something a little different about us! We are now doing business as Conservation Florida (CFL). We’re excited about the new name because it clearly represents what we do and where we do it! The shorter name is more descriptive, straightforward, and memorable.
The name change is part of a broader outreach initiative to communicate our mission to protect Florida’s natural and agricultural landscapes for future generations.
We have also updated our mission, vision, and website. Additionally, we’ve created new marketing materials with the help of a grant from the Land Trust Alliance.
Conservation Florida is experiencing a time of great transition marked by growth and progress, and this name change reflects just that. Last year, we hired new leadership and recommitted to working on statewide land conservation projects with a focus on large conservation lands and the corridors that connect them. Today, the organization is working on over 30 active projects totaling more than 180,000 acres.
Conservation Florida is proud of our history, and we look forward to a very bright future as an effective, trusted partner in the work of saving Florida, forever.
Since our founding in 1999, CFL has been instrumental in helping to protect over 25,000 acres throughout the state. More than half of that acreage has been protected during the last five years.
As Conservation Florida grows to meet the opportunities and challenges ahead, we remain an accredited land trust committed to long-term stability, sound finances, ethical conduct, responsible governance, and lasting stewardship.
So, remember, when you think about conservation in Florida, think of us – Conservation Florida!
