Celebrating 75 Years of Florida's WMAs
One purchase of land in 1941 has grown into an over 6 million acre system of conserved habitat across Florida. Wildlife Management Areas provide homes for some of Florida’s most iconic, and threatened, wildlife species. At the same time, they contribute unparalleled hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities.
In 2017, FWC held public events and activities throughout the year that celebrated the 75th Anniversary of the Wildlife Management Area System and its significant role and achievements in conserving our fish and wildlife.
