The mission of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida is to "protect Southwest Florida’s unique natural environment and quality of life, now and forever." The organization is located on 21 acres in Naples, Florida, and features the Conservancy of Southwest Florida Nature Center.

The Conservancy dates back to 1964 when a small group of concerned citizens in Naples succeeded in stopping the construction of a roadway through Rookery Bay. 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.

  • 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.
