Florida Wildlife Needs You

If you are a wild animal living on a planet with human beings who are changing your living area, your home, your habitat, there is very little you can do to protect yourself. But as a human being there is a lot you can do to make sure our animal neighbors survive in health and safety. 

In Florida, 39 resident forms of wildlife are listed by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service as either endangered or threatened. This means that some day, there could be none of them left at all. Follow our links and learn more.
