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.
