Magic Under the Mangroves™ began as the 40th-anniversary celebration for the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Now, 13 years later, Magic has grown to be one of the top charitable events in Southwest Florida.
The 2016 Magic Under the Mangroves™ event raised more than $1.2 million net income, a sizeable portion of the Conservancy’s annual operating budget. Since its inception, Magic has raised more than $8.1 million net.
All proceeds support the Conservancy mission to protect Southwest Florida’s water, land, wildlife and future. The money funds Conservancy programs such as:
Sea turtle satellite tracking and tagging
Treating, feeding and rehabilitating the 3,800+ native animals admitted to the von Arx Wildlife Hospital in 2016
Reaching more than 6,000 local students each year with high-quality environmental education at their schools
Funding staff who travel to Tallahassee and Washington DC to advocate on behalf of Conservancy members
Equipment for water quality monitoring and estuary research projects
Interns to support efforts across the organization
Summer Camp scholarships for “at-risk” kids
