The Mission
The Sunshine State Biodiversity Group is committed to conservation, education, and outreach related to biodiversity and rewilding in the state of Florida. Our work emphasizes projects that fill in gaps, occupy underserved areas, or provide otherwise unavailable information to the public. SSBG aims to find creative and fun ways to engage with Florida communities and amplify conversations on key issues that affect biodiversity and quality of life. 

Recent News
The SSBG recently received a $40,000 grant for land conservation from the Fredman Family Foundation. This grant will go toward preservation of critically endangered Florida ecosystems. 

In addition, the SSBG awarded a grant to sponsor and fund the Leon County 4-H Young Naturalist's Program. 

Future Projects

Initiatives SSBG will be working on in 2024 include:

  • Creation of a boardwalk for protected habitat.

  • Sponsorship of a North Florida canopy survey.

  • Conservation of ecologically valuable land in North Florida.

We also are partnering with Tallahassee's Word of South literary festival, the Tallahassee Film Festival and other cultural events for unique programming as well as virtual and in-person public conversations with noted environmentalists. To get involved, please use the form on the contact page.
