Conservation Foundation is Enhancing Communities in Southwest Florida

The Giving Coast

 Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast is delighted to announce their 20th Anniversary February spotlight, Enhancing Communities. As they celebrate twenty years of conservation and community, each month the not-for-profit land trust is spotlighting a different aspect of their work and the corresponding community impact. This 20th Anniversary spotlight series is generously sponsored by Elizabeth Moore. Saving land enhances communities in a myriad of ways. At the most fundamental level, land conservation protects vital natural resources such as forests, wetlands, rivers, and wildlife habitats. These resources contribute to clean air and water, regulate climate, support biodiversity, and provide recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike. Saving land in Florida also yields significant economic benefits, contributing to the multiple industries, property values, and overall economic prosperity. Florida's natural landscapes attract millions of visitors each year, and conserved land provides extensive opportunities for nature-based recreation such as hiking, biking, kayaking, birdwatching, boating, fishing, and wildlife viewing, which are vital to our state’s tourism revenue. By protecting natural habitats and biodiversity, land conservation helps to sustain tourism and nature-based businesses, including tour operators, guides, and outdoor suppliers, thereby creating jobs and income opportunities for residents. Visitors to the Sunshine State also spend money on accommodations, dining, transportation, and other recreational services, further supporting local businesses, creating jobs, and generating revenue for communities.
