Saving Florida. For Nature. For People. Forever.
The Conservation Trust for Florida works with landowners to save Florida’s wild and working landscapes for future generations.
We find cooperative, innovative ways to protect land that forms wildlife corridors and provides food, clean air and water, and offers outdoor recreation opportunities for Florida’s residents and visitors.
We have protected over 19,000 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 100,000 acres.
Our projects stretch from the Florida panhandle to the Everglades and are guided by scientific research that identifies areas of highest priority. These large, statewide projects have global significance and will help protect some of the rarest habitats and species in the world. Read more about our projects >>
