The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is conducting a study to learn more about how Florida landowners manage land and wildlife. Landowners are encouraged to take part in the survey to provide the FWC insights into landowner preferences and priorities. We are asking landowners to complete a brief voluntary survey, the results of which will help FWC to improve educational services and programs that benefit landowners across the state.

FWC recognizes the critical role that private lands play in providing sustainable fish and wildlife populations and habitat. The FWC’s Landowner Assistance Program works with private landowners who are interested in enhancing wildlife and habitat on their properties. Landowner Assistance Program biologists provide landowners with advice on land management, species management, habitat restoration, forest practices and agriculture land uses to help meet landowner objectives. Biologists also assist landowners in navigating the many financial assistance programs that help private landowners enhance and protect native habitats.
