Florida Preserves

Florida is home to some of the most beautiful and diverse natural areas in the world. From secluded beaches, to lush forests, to vast wetlands and swamps, Florida’s ecological preserves offer a variety of habitats and environments that are perfect for exploring and admiring the beauty of nature.

Over a thousand acres in Florida are protected for the purposes of keeping ecological systems as they are and untouched by humans. Florida’s preserves include aquatic preserves, national estuarine research reserves, national marine sanctuaries, coral reef conservations and much, much more.

Florida’s ecological preserves are managed by state and federal agencies, such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection. These preserves help keep wild species safe, protect critical habitats for plants and animals, and support important recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike.

Florida’s ecological preserves offer many unique experiences, from wildlife viewing to bird watching to fishing, boating and more. There are also plenty of opportunities for education, research and appreciation of Florida’s natural areas.
