Building bridges of hope for wildlife and the natural world with education, research and awareness.
Established in 2000, FGCU’s “Wings of Hope” environmental education program connects 450 university students with 5,000 elementary students each year through the life of the Florida black bear and endangered Florida panther. This nationally and state awarded program is housed in the Department of Integrated Studies and is an integral part of general education and service learning.
