Conservation Florida is working hard to protect land across Florida by purchasing, facilitating, and accepting donations of land and conservation easements. They are protecting land to make the Florida Wildlife Corridor a reality, giving critical species such as the Florida panther and black bear the room they need to roam. Conservation Florida has successfully protected over 25,000 acres since 1999 and are continually growing, ensuring that Florida has wild places for wildlife and people alike.
