Environment & Public Spaces
South Florida Wildlands Association (SFWA) is dedicated to the protection of wildlife and wildlife habitat in the Greater Everglades. Our mission is broad and focuses on public policy as it impacts the quantity and quality of lands, both public and private, available to native wildlife in our region. SFWA carries out our work through a number of means. Those include meetings and submission of extensive written and oral comments to decision makers in federal, state, and local agencies such as the National Park Service, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and the Miami-Dade County Commission. SFWA is also heavily engaged in environmental education in this community. We provide information through our popular Facebook Page, emails to our supporters, and interviews that we provide to the local press, radio, and television. We also give talks at various community organizations and educational institutions. Finally, SFWA conducts fieldwork in areas critical to South Florida’s wildlife but are threatened with various development projects in order to document baseline conditions and impacts.
