How You Can Help the Wood Stork

Through your actions and concern, you can help ensure a future for the wildlife of Florida's wetlands:

  • Never disturb wood storks or other birds in a rookery, as they may abandon their nests.
  • Be considerate when observing wildlife. Boats, dogs, and even people hiking nearby can disrupt wood stork courtship, nesting and feeding.
  • Join conservation groups such as the Florida Audubon Society or the Nature Conservancy and actively participate.
  • Let your local, state and federal representative know you support the protection and proper management of Florida's environments.
