Florida Panther (FWS)

Tell your state legislators to keep Florida Forever strong!

For more than two decades, Florida Forever has been the nation’s largest program for purchasing conservation lands, including wildlife habitat that is essential for the protection and recovery of vulnerable species such as the Florida panther, manatee, sea turtles and gopher tortoise.

However, in recent years, funding for Florida Forever was scaled back as the state focused instead on economic recovery. Now that the economy is gaining ground, it is essential to invest in high priority conservation lands, before this opportunity is lost forever.

Please urge your state senators and representatives to make Florida Forever strong enough to protect our treasured wildlife!
