Here's just a small sampling of what we aim preserving...
We are targeting large tracks of land that are habitat for listed and endangered species in Southwest Florida, including the panther. On January 2018, we will start occupying the house that used to be Dr. Bob Gore's home in East Naples and will take care of the 10 acres that surround the house. Soon, we will start creating a Nature center, opening the trails to the public, offering events and education. We're currently working on a private/public agreement with Conservancy Naples for the acquisition of the remaining 180 acres that used to be the total of Dr. Gore's land. These will be purchased and preserved.
These beautiful wetlands and marshes are home to countless native species, critically important for biodiversity.
Florida Panthers are usually found in pinelands, hardwood hammocks, and mixed swamp forest. Adult males may range over an area of 200 square miles, while females range over a 70-80 square mile area. Panthers are very solitary animals. This kitten's survival depends on no net loss of existing habitat.
Due to the tireless efforts of Ellen Peterson this beautiful wild creek was preserved for the public to enjoy. This is Ellen Peterson's memorial tree. She devoted her life to the preservation of Florida's native habitat. We will carry on her good work.
