About the Florida Wildlife Federation

The Florida Wildlife Federation, an affiliate of the National Wildlife Federation, is a private, statewide, non-profit citizens’ conservation education organization composed of thousands of Floridians and non-Floridians with a common interest in preserving, managing, and improving Florida’s wildlife.

Since 1936, the Florida Wildlife Federation has worked to conserve and protect Florida’s iconic species, wild places, and precious natural resources. With a diverse coalition of supporters ranging from anglers and hunters to conservationists and recreationists alike, we galvanize support to empower Floridians to act on the most pressing issues facing the health and sustainability of our wildlife and habitats.  

Our impact is felt within the communities we organize with, the classrooms we educate in, the legislative offices in which we advocate, and the courtrooms where we litigate.  

Together, with the help of conservationists and advocates throughout Florida, we work to protect the health of our water – from the many Outstanding Florida Springs to our precious coasts, estuaries, rivers, and bays. We advocate for the conservation of our state’s many wonderful, unique species and the habitat required to ensure their survival.  

Join us, and let’s keep Florida Wild.
