Who we are

Environment Florida is a citizen-based environmental advocacy organization and a project of Environment America. We believe that Florida’s environment is unique and worth protecting for future generations. Whether it's our world-famous beaches and estuaries, or our storied "river of grass," Florida's natural wonders—and amazing places across the country—enrich our lives in countless ways. Yet the places we love and the environmental values so many of us share are too often threatened by powerful industries, shortsighted politicians and more. Defending our environment requires independent research, tough-minded advocacy and spirited grassroots action. That's the idea behind Environment Florida. Together with thousands of supporters from all walks of life, we take the kind of action that wins tangible results for our environment.

What we do

Funded by supporters like you, we research the challenges confronting our environment and educate the public about what’s at stake. Through our research reports, news conferences, interviews with reporters, op-ed pieces, letters to the editor and more, we raise awareness of environmental issues and promote sensible solutions. Our canvassers meet people where they are — in public places or at their homes — raising awareness, recruiting new supporters and activists, and raising funds to support our work.

When decisions are being made about our environment, elected officials hear plenty from the oil companies, huge agricultural operations, developers and other powerful interests. We make the case for our environment and help make your voice heard, through petitions, emails, letters, phone calls and more, all delivered to the right people just when it matters most.
