As the Florida Natural Heritage Program, the FNAI maintains a comprehensive spatial database of the ecological resources of Florida. The database includes more than 30,000 occurrences of rare plant and animal species and high-quality natural communities throughout the state, more than 2,500 conservation lands managed by public and private agencies, boundaries of environmental land acquisition projects, and other lands with potential natural habitat on site. Public agencies, private firms, non-profit organizations, schools, and citizens from around the state and nation contact FNAI daily to request this information, for an average of more than 1,000 requests each year.

Although FNAI is administered by a state institution, we are funded solely through contracts and grants to perform specific environmental research and analysis services. Some of our contracts include funding to provide limited services to the public, but we are unable to meet the demand from all of our potential clients through contracts and grants. We therefore charge for many of our products and services in order to cover the costs of providing those services. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
An invoice will be emailed upon completion of your data request. Follow payment instructions on your invoice to remit payment.
*As a part of the Florida Natural Areas Inventory's contract with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Division of State Lands (DEP), these fees are generally waived for requests made by DEP or requests made by the public to fulfill DEP requirements (i.e. land management plans). Any data requests or other consultations must be paid for by the user at the rate of $89 per hour. These services are subject to limitations. Rush Data Reports are not available as a free service.
