Keeping Florida Wild Since 1936

Whether in the classroom, the halls of government, or the courtroom, the 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 and enjoy.

In our work, we are privileged to have broad support from conservationists from all walks of life – from anglers and arborists to biologists, educators, outdoor recreationists, and more. Because of this diverse coalition of dedicated conservationists, we can embrace not only grassroots and grass-top approaches to addressing conservation issues in Florida but everything in between.

From Tallahassee to Washington D.C., we strive to be changemakers at the forefront of the conservation issues most important to Floridians and the health of our natural environment.
