Preserving Florida's Wilderness
Saving Florida's wilderness was Allen Broussard's dream. He loved roaming the area next to the family's Crescent J Ranch as a boy. When he became a Wildlife Ecologist, he came to understand its ecological value.
Dr. Broussard, a 10th- generation rancher from Louisiana, and his wife, Margaret, made Allen's dream come true after his all-too-early passing. They founded the Allen Broussard Conservancy for the purpose of purchasing the land, known as Forever Florida, and keeping it as a wildlife preserve.
Visitors to Forever Florida make a positive impact on the environment as a substantial portion of proceeds go toward the purchase of additional lands to be conserved.
