North Florida Springs Alliance

The North Florida Springs Alliance (NFSA) is a Citizen Support Organization (CSO) for five state parks in north Florida. CSOs were created by Florida legislation as non-profit cooperatives with the state to conduct
programs and activities to better our parks. These groups provide voluntary support by educating visitors, hosting events and raising funds for specific park improvement projects. The NFSA plays a vital role in supporting Florida’s state parks, ensuring that our natural, cultural and historical resources are protected for future generations. Visit website


Save the Manatee Club

Human activities are harming manatees, and only our compassion and action can protect them.

Manatees are Florida’s official state marine mammal. They are listed as endangered at the international level by the IUCN World Conservation Union, at the federal level by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and at the state level by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Manatees are endangered largely due to human activity. Since record-keeping began in 1974, more than 41% of manatee deaths where cause of death was identified were human-related – and almost 34% were due to watercraft collisions (the largest known cause of manatee deaths). With increased awareness, education, regulations, and enforcement, manatee deaths caused by humans could be substantially reduced, and the eventual recovery of the species could be realized.
