The Nature Conservancy
The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. For more than 56 years, we've been working in Florida to do just that. The Nature Conservancy owns and manages approximately 55,159 acres in Florida including four preserves that are open to the public.
was founded in 1999 as Conservation Trust for Florida, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit land trust. Our mission is to work with landowners to save Florida’s natural and agricultural landscapes for future generations. To date, we have worked with private landowners, governmental agencies, and partnering nonprofits to protect over 25,000 acres. We are currently leading protection projects totaling over 180,000 acres!
