As the Conservation Trust for Florida approaches its 15th Anniversary, there is a sense of urgency to act, and our new Case Statement describes how and why.
Over the next 5 years the CTF will engage private landowners in some of the most critical conservation areas of the state, and work to bridge conservation and private lands to protect Florida's diverse wildlife, agricultural heritage, outdoor recreation opportunities and quality of life.
