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.
Conservancy biologists have been researching mangrove systems since the Conservancy’s inception and have one of Florida’s longest continuous mangrove monitoring projects. Today’s Mangrove research primarily focuses on forests adjacent to human development, such as the Clam Bay Estuary and Fruit Farm Creek – Goodland Die-off.
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.
