The Florida Wildlife Federation’s programs cover the entire conservation spectrum. We are involved in species protection for the rare Florida panther, legislative advocacy in Tallahassee and Washington, water pollution abatement, and sustainable fish and wildlife management.

Water, both fresh and salt, are the life-blood of Florida. From the internally renown Everglades to the St. Johns and Apalachicola Rivers, our waterways are emblematic and essential to both humans and wildlife. FWF has advocated and litigated for the reduction of pollution and the proper management of this precious resource.
As temperatures rise and hurricanes become even more violent. Florida boasts coral reefs, but they are slowly dying due to acidification, and exotic plant and animal species are moving northward on the peninsula as colder weather retreats. FWF pushes for action on a state and national level to meet this challenge.
Florida provides one-third of the nation’s seafood and is one of the country’s premier destinations for recreational saltwater fishing with a coastline stretching 1,350 miles. These coasts contain the estuaries that are the nurseries of the sea. To protect this vital resource, we have consistently opposed oil drilling off the coasts of Florida. The risk is simply too great.
