The Nature Conservancy has undertaken a fundraising effort to buy 631 acres just north of Orlando that is home to the largest black bear population in Florida. The parcel is bordered on three sides by conservation land and if permanently protected, would maintain a narrow corridor between the Ocala National Forest and the Wekiva Springs State Park. Bears have lived in Florida forests for more than a million years and require large, connected landscapes to survive. Today, only 2,500-3,000 remain in habitats throughout Florida but are threatened by development and highways. http://www.nature.org/bear
