The Voice of Conservation in Florida
For more than a century Audubon has encouraged people to take care of the places that make Florida special. Using science to guide our priorities and birdlife to measure ecosystem health, Audubon advocates for the protection of land, water, and wildlife. Audubon is Florida’s most influential conservation organization and conducts extensive work to protect the Everglades and coastal bird habitats. We manage sanctuaries covering thousands of acres along with two popular nature centers. Audubon promotes stewardship and appreciation of public land and water so people experience and cherish Florida’s natural beauty and wildlife.
2018 will go down in the record books as one of the greatest years for wading bird nesting efforts in recent memory. However, one of Audubon’s indicator species exhibited disappointing nesting efforts by comparison.
On Monday, the Town Council of Fort Myers Beach voted down an ordinance exception that would have allowed boardwalk construction into nesting bird habitat in the Little Estero Island Critical Wildlife Area (CWA).
