The Florida Conservation Coalition is devoted to protecting and conserving Florida’s land, fish and wildlife, and water resources that are essential to the well-being and quality of life of the residents of this state, and for its long-term economic prosperity. Florida's natural resources are a treasure to be conserved for the people of Florida and must be managed judiciously, not squandered.
Our focus is ensuring that state safeguards are in place to protect and properly manage the supply and quality of Florida’s water resources. We support meaningful funding for land conservation to protect sensitive natural lands, protect water resources and wildlife habitat, as well as offer recreational opportunities to citizens and tourists. We support an effective state and regional process of managing growth and development to maintain and enhance the quality of life for present and future Floridians.
To accomplish this, it is essential that citizens of all ages and backgrounds understand the importance of protecting these priceless resources. It is imperative that candidates for office, elected officials and all policy makers be informed on key conservation issues.
Citizens must get involved and stay engaged at all levels. We encourage citizens and groups to join in the political process by contacting their legislators, working in their communities, and encouraging everyone to vote.
