For more than 50 years, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida has been a leading environmental advocacy organization dedicated to protecting the water, land, wildlife and future of our five-county area.
Since 2013, the Conservancy and research partners have been conducting radio telemetry fieldwork to document python biology and behavior in Collier County. To date, 75 adult Burmese pythons have been radio-tagged and tracked across Southwest Florida.
At the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, we believe the more we can connect people with nature, the more willing they are to protect it. Our Nature Center and programs help us to do just that!
Our work is only possible because of generous donors like you that care about Southwest Florida’s precious natural resources and quality of life.
