Ocala to Osceola (O2O) Wildlife Corridor

At North Florida Land Trust we believe wildlife need big, wild, and connected landscapes that provide for their needs to find food, reproduce, and raise their young. By building an interconnected corridor from Ocala National Forest through Camp Blanding to Osceola National Forest, we can create a landscape that permanently provides for the needs of some of Florida’s most threatened species.

Testimonials

What the NFLT brings to the table, what we saw first hand, is not just an understanding of the process, and a staff possessing the technical skills necessary to compiling the mass of necessary data but also a certain institutional stature that gets the attention of the decision makers.

Additionally, the calm, persistent, evidence and science based approach they apply to a project that they see as having merit and value……well……that sort of thing overcomes great hurdles, hurdles that would stymie a landowner working alone.

In our view, they are a catalyst that turns potential into conservation!

As a monthly donor to this organization, I know my funds are leveraged in a smart way that make a tremendous impact on conservation in our state. I’m impressed by the growth and the smart, strategic approach NFLT takes when identifying and pursuing properties to save. This is a great investment in our region, because once the land is gone we can’t get it back!

We bought a beautiful 44-acre plot of natural Florida in a very special neighborhood with families who have lived here for 3 generations. We quickly realized how aggressively development is taking over the land around us. I couldn’t imagine when we left the farm for the last time a bulldozer would be there to tear down our longleaf, crush our gopher tortoise, leave the hawks, turkey, and migrating birds no place to live. NFLT has helped us preserve our small piece of natural Florida. Now we know when we leave our farm NFLT has helped us preserve, NFLT will also be there to help our heirs continue to preserve our piece of heaven.
