Northwest Florida Environmental Conservancy



Northwest Florida in addition to the adjacent Gulf Coastal regions of Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia, contain the highest biodiversity of flora & fauna and is home to more species of plants & animals than any other comparable region in the entire U.S.  The purpose of the NWFLEC organization is to raise public awareness of the incredible natural history of this region.


The Purpose and Goals of NWFLEC include:
A) Preservation and improvement of the natural and native environment and ecosystems of northwest Florida.  Special emphasis will be placed on the biodiversity of the Florida Panhandle; endemic, specialized and unique and rare and endangered species.  Adjacent Gulf Coastal areas of Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia will also be of concern.
B) Increased public natural history education, conservation and awareness of the biodiversity and the unique environments of northwest Florida and adjacent Gulf Coastal States.
C) Aid private, local, County, State and Federal agencies and organizations, agriculture, and the general public in environmental education, conservation, economic planning and development of the northern Gulf Coastal region.  The preservation, conservation and proper ecological management of endemic, critical and rare and endangered species and ecosystems will always be the highest priority of NWFLEC.  Responsible, sustained and renewable usage of our natural resources and ecologically sensitive development activities will always be highly stressed.
D) The ultimate goal of the Northwest Florida Environmental Conservancy is to establish and build a very unique nature center called the Northwest Florida Nature Center.
The lack of public knowledge and understanding of this incredible region has raised the awareness for the need for an organization that is solely dedicated to the conservation and environmental education of the Florida Panhandle and the adjacent Gulf Coastal areas.
