Ever since, the Conservancy has focused on protecting the water, land and wildlife of the Southwest Florida area through environmental policy, science, education and wildlife rehabilitation.
The Conservancy of Southwest Florida focuses its efforts in five Southwest Florida counties: Collier, Charlotte, Lee, Hendry and Glades.

  • The conservancy is a great experience full of knowledgeable young people who obviously love their job working with the animals. It's a great learning experience and just a wonderful nonprofit organization that not only cares about animals, but the environment and the earth! Highly recommend visiting and supporting them in their efforts to keep wild animals, the earth and waters protected.
  • We loved visiting the conservancy on our trip to Naples. We went into the animal hospital and was able to see a baby otter, a bald eagle and some owls who are being treated. Such a wonderful place and a beautiful mission. Highly recommend stopping by. Super kid friendly.
