Nature Conservation

The great outdoors should be a gift that keeps giving generation after generation.  Unfortunately, not all that trek into the forests and waterways take care in leaving no footprint once they are gone.  This page is dedicated to organizations that bring awareness and education about the plights and conditions of our Florida wildlife and landscapes.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) consists of 2,118.5 full-time-equivalent employees, including 853 sworn law enforcement officers. All personnel work together to protect and manage more than 575 species of wildlife, 200 species of freshwater fish and 500 species of saltwater fish.


By connecting people with nature NTOTA raises awareness and facilitates giving to help protect wild places and the wildlife living there.

“Path of the Panther” is conservation photography project by Carlton Ward, Jr., telling the story of the Florida panther to inspire protection of the Florida Wildlife Corridor.
