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.
