Preserving Rural Lands

 

Wildlife

Protecting working lands benefits many species of wildlife including sandhill cranes, gopher tortoises, bears, and panthers.

 

Family Farms & Ranches

Our work supports the success of working family farms and ranches. Protecting agricultural lands contributes to a strong Florida economy. 

 

Food Security

Florida is also one of the nation’s top producers of food. Ensuring we have adequate land set aside for agriculture is a prudent measure for our growing population. Managed timberlands and ranchlands are also included in this category. We often refer to land used for agriculture as “working lands.” In addition to producing food for local consumption, these lands also produce important commodities to export.
