Our Mission

The Everglades Foundation is dedicated to protecting and restoring one of the world’s unique natural ecosystems, providing economic, recreational and life-sustaining benefits to the millions of people who depend on its future health.  Through the advancement of scientifically sound and achievable solutions, the foundation seeks to reverse the damage inflicted on the ecosystem and provide policy makers and the public with an honest and credible resource to help guide decision-making on complex restoration issues.  Our strength comes from the support we receive from our partners, board, staff and true believers who know we can correct mistakes of the past.

Why Support the Everglades Foundation

America’s Everglades is a singular United States ecosystem. For decades, historic restoration efforts have been underway to reverse the damage, halt the encroachment and return the Glades to a more natural functioning state. It is a complex process engaging various scientific disciplines, involving constant interaction with federal and state authorities who have pledged $11 billion toward the effort.  We also work to involve communities and land owners to become better Everglades’s stewards. When you support the Everglades foundation, you are supporting an organization that is focused only on the Everglades. Our staff and science team work with environmental partners, state and federal legislators, policy analysts ranchers, fishermen, industry leaders and others to make the case for restoration.
