Help Us Make a Difference: Support for Predator-Prey Research


For the well-being of our staff, visitors, and the community at large, Archbold Biological Station and Buck Island Ranch are currently closed to the general public until further notice. With the rest of Florida, we too are slowly returning to more 'normal' conditions and will be reopening as soon as we can ensure everyone's safety. The Queen of Red Hill has renewed her declaration to "stay in your burrow," just a bit longer. We wish you good health.

Archbold is re-establishing Predator-Prey Research

Archbold is thrilled to announce a major gift to re-establish our predator-prey research program beginning November, 2020. Led by established conservation ecologist, Joe Guthrie, this program will couple scientific research and conservation efforts to better understand and protect large predators, such as the Florida Black Bear and Florida Panther, and the landscapes upon which they depend.

Year end appeal

Archbold's Year-End Appeal is underway! Please consider a gift to support our far-reaching and steadfast mission-to build and share the scientific knowledge needed to protect the life, lands, and waters of the heart of Florida, and beyond. Never has this mission been more important. Your gift between now and December 31, 2020 will be DOUBLED, thanks to a generous and committed donor. We are so grateful for your support.
