Each year, thousands of hours of advocacy, research and education by our team at Friends of the Everglades are reflected in our annual report. It’s a testament to what YOU helped us accomplish.

In 2023, we championed science-led solutions to protect water quality, spotlighted injustice and introduced more young minds than ever to the magic of the Everglades. Our annual report — hot off the presses — is a snapshot of the dedication and passion of our staff, board of directors and volunteers, as well as a signal of the potential for a better future for Florida’s water and wilderness.

We hope you enjoy reading it.

If you’ve contributed to Friends of the Everglades recently, THANK YOU. Your commitment fuels our mission, empowering us to continue the vital work of preserving and protecting this cherished natural wonder.

If it’s been awhile, we invite you to make a tax-deductible donation today to further advance the grassroots, science-driven progress you see in our annual report.
