About FAVOR Florida Keys!

The Mission of FAVOR - Friends And Volunteers Of Refuges - Florida Keys is to support the National Wildlife Refuges of the Florida Keys through education, non adversarial advocacy, volunteerism and fundraising.


FAVOR began in 1997 by a group of local residents concerned with the environment and the wildlife in our refuges.


Our Goals: To further the understanding and appreciation of the Florida Keys’ refuges by creating and attending educational programs, supporting a clean environment and recycling efforts through regular Clean Up events and Trash can corrals.


Our Projects & Programs: FAVOR operates the Key Deer Bookstore, specializing in books, toys and gifts related to nature and history of the Florida Keys.  FAVOR volunteers help staff the Refuges’ Visitor Center, the Blue Hole, outreach, trail maintenance and other projects. FAVOR helps sponsor several of the Refuges’ educational programs including Camp Run-a-Muk, Rockin’ Refuge Rangers. Also the Florida Keys Birding and Wildlife Festival and other events.
