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.

Highly recommended for all age groups. We did the guided kayaking tour with a combination of older and younger people. Their boarding area is specifically designed to assist customers with special needs to get on and off their kayak by leveraging a hand bar for assistance. We really enjoyed our visit.
The Conservancy of Southwest Florida is a remarkable organization. It runs a wildlife hospital that cares for injured animals. It sponsors an ecological boat ride on modern electric boats that are very quiet and captained by competent tour leaders. There are modern exhibits for folks of all ages and a small but interesting gift shop. The organization also champions environmental causes throughout the region. I'll say it again. This is a remarkable organization.
