Create Wildlife Habitat At Home
Though Florida has an abundance of parks, refuges and other natural areas, most are separated from each other by privately owned land that covers nearly three-quarters of the state. By transforming our simple landscapes into places where animals can find the food, water and shelter they need to survive, we can connect our properties with the protected natural areas and create a network of wildlife habitat across the state.
