Discover Wildlife

Wildlife is all around us, even in our own yards. Through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Nature Trackers website, you can learn how and where to identify and enjoy the plants and animals around you. You can also learn how to enrich habitat for wildlife around your home and neighborhood.

Once you start to learn about native plants and wildlife, you’ll be eager to see more. Completing a WildQuest on one of FWC’s wildlife management areas is a great way to go beyond your own yard. You’ll be amazed by the beauty of these conservation areas and the wildlife you’ll find there. Become a nature tracker and start on a journey that can lead to a lifetime of discovery and enjoyment!
