The docuseries, Protect Our Paradise, presented by Conservation Florida, will shine a spotlight on the significant efforts of conservationists who are at the forefront of preserving Florida's natural wonders. Alongside showcasing the work of these conservationists throughout the state, the show will also emphasize the importance of Florida's land, water, wildlife, and the indispensable natural infrastructure that serves as Florida's lifeblood.

Conservation Florida’s mission to protect wild and agricultural landscapes has never been more important because of the tremendous pressure being placed on Florida’s ecosystems in this day and time. As a statewide land conservancy, the organization has saved over 30,000 acres across the Florida Wildlife Corridor since its inception.

Florida is the third-most populous state in the nation, growing by nearly 1,000 newcomers each day. We’re projected to exceed 30 million residents by 2060. With this comes a greater demand for water and the development of rural and natural lands for urban use. How we manage our natural resources over the next 10 years – what we save and what we pave – will undoubtedly determine Florida’s conservation future and the future of Florida as a whole.

Protect our Paradise, presented by Conservation Florida will raise awareness about the pressing necessity of collective efforts to safeguard Florida's precious natural resources. Crucially, the series will provide viewers with actionable steps they can take to contribute.
