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.
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.
On April 27, 2020, the Florida Senate and the Florida House of Representatives passed of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Act, with bipartisan support. We applaud the Florida legislature's leadership and their commitment to conserving Florida's land and water resources. This historic milestone was made possible thanks to the support of a broad coalition of partners from the agricultural, environmental and scientific communities over the past decade. If signed by the Governor, the legislation will take effect on July 1, 2021.
Due to the threat of COVID-19, Archbold is closed to the public. However, we are pleased to present a new seminar series offered online! You must register to receive your link
