Education

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is committed to introducing educators, youth, adults and families to exciting ways they can learn more about our diverse fish and wildlife resources. But, it's not just about learning, it's about getting outside and having fun, too.

We believe that current and future generations of Floridians are more likely to aid in the protection and enhancement of these resources if they understand and appreciate them, and that children and adults who spend time outdoors learn to love and better understand Florida's unique and varied environment.

Through education or recreation experiences people can become more interested in knowing the role they play in conserving our resources. With that knowledge, they may become better stewards of the land and our fish and wildlife resources, making more informed choices about their daily activities and helping influence others to cherish and enhance our natural heritage.
