Conservation Florida Fund (est. 2019)
From the Florida Panhandle to the Everglades, our work is shaping Florida’s Conservation Future. In fact, the large, statewide projects we target have global significance and will help protect some of the rarest habitats and species in the world.
We focus on conservation projects that provide habitat for the survival of Florida’s iconic species, recharge drinking water or benefit other hydrologic functions, offer outdoor recreation, and other community benefits. We also help landowners with working ranches, farms and timberlands to keep their land in production for generations to come.
Conservation Florida was founded in 1999 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit land trust. Our mission is to work with landowners to save Florida’s natural and agricultural landscapes for future generations.
To date, we have worked with private landowners, governmental agencies, and partnering nonprofits to protect over 25,000 acres. We are currently leading protection projects totaling over 180,000 acres!
