The Florida Natural Areas Inventory is Florida's Natural Heritage Program and state member of the NatureServe network. We are housed within the Florida Resources and Environmental Analysis Center at Florida State University. We manage a database of current information on Florida's rarest species, maintain an inventory of the state's conservation land holdings, and conduct ecological surveys and analyses to support conservation planning and land management. Our program is entirely supported by projects developed in cooperation with agency partners.
of the Florida Natural Areas Inventory is to collect, interpret, and disseminate ecological information critical to the conservation of Florida's biological diversity. FNAI's database and expertise facilitate environmentally sound planning and natural resource management to protect the plants, animals, and communities that represent Florida's natural heritage.
