The Florida Wildlife Federation has worked tirelessly for nearly 90 years to protect at-risk species, conserve remaining wildlife habitat, and ensure that our state’s natural beauty and precious resources remain for future generations to value. In that time, the Federation has played an important role in many significant environmental achievements and benchmarks.
A Legacy of Conservation
Over the last century, Florida’s plants and wildlife have struggled to survive in the midst of unchecked development, polluted waters, and disappearing wetlands. But some who loved the old, wild Florida fought back. In the mid-1930s, sportsmen and women in various states started working together toward the common goal of conserving not just game animals and their habitats, but all of America’s natural glories. In 1936, burgeoning interest in the conservation movement led to the founding of state wildlife federations, including the Florida Wildlife Federation.
Fast forward to the 21st century, the Federation represents conservationists from all walks of life. We engage at the local, state, and federal levels to ensure our wildlife and the habitats they rely on are protected and conserved for future generations to come.
