DON'T Let GREEDY Real Estate Developers WIN!

Tax deductible
Help us stop the loss of native habitat before it’s too late! Wildlife habitats are being demolished by Greedy real estate developers displacing outpacing their ability to adjust and relocate. This 'greed and speed' have led to an alarming lack of natural, safe native habitat. the Cape Coral Wildlife Trust purchases land to ensure all native wildlife have a safe home. each lot, parcel or acreage we purchase is a lifetime of conservancy for those species and generations to come! We could not succeed without your generous support.

We are a registered 501 (c) Non-Profit and we are different! No one else does what we do. Other land trusts look to acquire large tracts of property. We purchase relatively small, city-sized lots of prime wildlife habitat for threatened and other wildlife species here in Cape Coral. Our city is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. Consequently, development pressure on wildlife is extreme.

Established in November 2017, the Cape Coral Wildlife Trust currently owns 57 city lots providing habitat for gopher tortoises, burrowing owls and ALL the other wildlife species that depend upon their burrows. We are LITERALLY racing against time. The rapid pace of development in Cape Coral has pressed the urgency to purchase critically needed prime wildlife habitats before they disappearing daily.

Establishing gopher tortoise preserves in Cape Coral is critical to more than the preservation of gopher tortoise populations making it a keystone species. National Geographic states emphatically that the gopher tortoise is "crucial to the ecosystem of the southeastern United States. More than 350 other species — burrowing owls, coyotes, snakes, foxes, and more —use tortoise burrows to seek shelter and escape heat, fires, and predators. For this reason, gopher tortoises are considered a keystone species. If they disappear from an environment, the ecosystem will collapse in on itself.” The gopher tortoise is classified as State Threatened by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
