The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation

The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation is dedicated to the conservation of coastal habitats and aquatic resources on Sanibel and Captiva and in the surrounding watershed. Since incorporating in 1967, SCCF has acquired and preserved over 2,100 acres of environmentally sensitive land on and around the islands. Without protection, many of these areas would have been lost to residential and commercial development, either directly or by fragmentation of habitat. Six priority program areas forward its mission: Marine Research, Natural Resource Policy, Wildlife Habitat Management (including snowy plover and sea turtle conservation), Environmental Education, Land Acquisition, and Landscaping for Wildlife.
