Florida's Wildlife Management Areas

Celebrating 75 Years of Florida's WMAs


One purchase of land in 1941 has grown into an almost 6 million acre system of conserved habitat across Florida. Wildlife management areas provide homes for some of Florida’s most iconic, and threatened, wildlife species. At the same time, they contribute unparalleled hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities.
