North Florida Land Trust is constantly working to protect critical wildlife areas and fragile conservation lands. Land is available to be saved . . . but we need your help! We must have funds on hand to protect these special places before they are sold to competing interests. To this end, we have established the Preservation Fund to ensure we can act NOW to save these lands.

The Preservation Fund was created to respond to our rapidly disappearing landscape and raise funds fast. It supports the crux of our mission to preserve and restore the most treasured lands in our region.

What will Florida look like twenty years from now? According to 1000 Friends of Florida, by 2040 Florida will lose more than 2.5 million acres of land to development and urban use. That is an area the size of Delaware and Rhode Island combined! Below is a baseline map of development within Northeast Florida in 2010 and where it is projected to be by 2070 if we do not change the trajectory that we are on.

 

You can help protect wildlands now before they are consumed by development. DONATE TO THE PRESERVATION FUND TODAY! Your dollar will protect the land that protects us and all living beings. Land saves us from severe storms, protects us from floods, safeguards our water supply, ensures our own survival and the survival of other plants and animals that do not have a voice. Your support is vital. We need you NOW.

・・・DID YOU KNOW...The red-cockaded woodpecker is the only bird in North America that makes their roost and nest cavities in live pine trees. They use the pine tree's sap as protection from predators.

Isn't this the most adorable, kissable nose you've ever seen? Who wouldn't want to "Boop the snoot?"

~ E B B A N D F L O W - North Florida is blessed with some of the most pristine wetlands in the state. When seen from above, these undulating creeks and estuaries remind me of arteries that provide life for our marine environment. This view is taken along A1A near Clapboard Creek. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #pureflorida #florida_greatshots #lovefl #exploreflorida #dronephotography #djimavicpro #timucanpreserve #tpf25 #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #floridawetlands #northfloridalandtrust #northfloridawild #voidlive #igersjax #jacksonvillebeach #bigtalbotisland #flstateparks #southernliving #southernlivingmag #arbusmagazine #saltlife #clapboardcreek #abstractaerialart #A1A #floridageorgialine ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ...

It’s tough to make a birthday wish on nature. But Oak has for 3 years running- knowing that seeing them hatch and make their way to the ocean means the odds are never in your favor. But one week before she’s 8, on a family walk down the beach, we checked a nest and saw the tiniest of movement. And waited. And waited. And then we yelped and hugged and escorted these beauties to the tide. (Red light so we didn’t distract from their mission)
Oak whispered “mom, this is the best day of my entire life”. Then, one babe got washed back up to shore and went right over her toes while she stood solid as a statue and wished him well into the beautiful dark night. “We will miss you! Have the best life ever friend!” #explorenaturewithkids #adventuringwithkids #visitstaugustine #visitflorida #northfloridawild
