Thank You!

Because of the kindness and generosity of our donors, Archbold's Year-End Matching Gift Appeal was a great success, exceeding the $100,000 Matching Gift goal. Your contributions help Archbold achieve our mission to build and share the scientific knowledge needed to protect the life, lands, and waters of the heart of Florida and beyond, and help Archbold do our part to #keepFLwild. We are grateful and honored for the continued support from our friends, colleagues, family, and donors.

New Predator-Prey Research

With your support and our science as the driving force behind all that we do, Archbold works tirelessly to help #keepFLwild. Thanks to a generous donor, Archbold is re-establishing predator-prey research, coupling scientific research and conservation efforts to better understand and protect large predators, such as the Florida Black Bear and the Florida Panther, and the habitats on which they rely.


Archbold staff, friends, and family are grieving the loss of our beloved team member and Chief Financial Officer, Eric Stein. Eric served as Archbold's CFO for 15 years, and he will be profoundly missed. Click here to read Archbold's tribute to Eric.
