The Environmental Policy and Advocacy Department works to ensure that our region’s leaders have the proper tools to make informed decisions about the future of Southwest Florida.

Keeping our region attractive, livable, and functioning well is a complex task. It’s about balancing conservation with economic health and making sure decisions and actions are supported by science-based information and policies. 

The Conservancy of Southwest Florida Policy and Advocacy Department helps steward smart growth in our area – keeping natural open spaces for all to enjoy, advising on transportation planning and land use decisions, and helping to preserve environmentally sensitive lands. The Conservancy works actively with decision makers to ensure a bright future for generations to come.
