The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation is dedicated to the conservation of coastal habitats and aquatic resources on Sanibel and Captiva and in the surrounding watershed. SCCF manages over 1300 acres of land on the islands (and owns an additional 500 acres on nearby Pine Island).
The SCCF Marine Laboratory actively conducts research in areas including seagrasses, mangroves, harmful algal blooms, fish populations and shellfish restoration. SCCF’s RECON (River, Estuary and Coastal Observing Network) network of seven in-water sensors provides real-time, hourly readings of key water quality parameters – spanning a 90-mile area – which are available on our web site. Our weather station provides current data from our station on Sanibel-Captiva Road on Sanibel.
SCCF offers a wide array of educational programs for people of all ages, from beach walks to trail walks, boat tours, wading trips and kayak tours plus classroom-based activities.
At our Nature Center on Sanibel, we have four miles of trails (with an observation tower), exhibits, a touch tank, butterfly house and Nature Shop.
Our Native Plant Nursery has a wide selection of native plants for sale, and also offers landscaping and educational services.
