The Alliance has distributed more than $11 million to our national parks since it was founded in 2002.
We receive no government funding and rely on the support of private donors to fund projects that provide an elevated exploration experience for visitors and allow these parks to better safeguard these public lands.
On average, we support about 20 programs each year, ranging from education to exploration to preservation & protection to restoration - and beyond, including...
Youth Environmental Education: Each year, thousands of children learn about our national parks through immersive in-park and virtual experiences. In the 2020-2021 school year, these programs reached more than 50,000 students throughout Florida and all across the country.
Sea Turtle Conservation: Tens of thousands of pounds of debris are removed from our shorelines and waterways throughout Everglades, Biscayne, and Dry Tortugas National Parks to create safer spaces for nesting sea turtles.
Invasive Species Removal: Exotic wildlife and plant life have plagued our parks for decades. We've helped address the challenges of the increasing threat from pythons, tegus, lionfish, and Brazilian pepper - among other species - within these parks.
Together, we ensure that our state's greatest natural ecosystems are preserved and protected for generations to come. We encourage you to become more than just a visitor, but to become an ally for Florida's national parks.
Founded in 2002, The Alliance for Florida's National Parks is the official philanthropic partner for Florida's four national parks: Everglades, Biscayne and Dry Tortugas National Parks, as well as Big Cypress National Preserve. The organization strives to instill in all people an appreciation of Florida's public lands and natural resources for what they are - the key to the sustainability and prosperity of the state. Through five focused pillars of support - education, exploration, preservation & protection, restoration and community engagement - The Alliance's work enriches the park experience and creates deeper connections between diverse communities and the nature that abounds in their backyards.
