Welcome to our website!  We are the Key Deer Protection Alliance.  We're here to tell you about the Key deer, a very special endangered species unique to the Florida Keys, and how they (hopefully) are being saved from extinction... if their habitat doesn't keep disappearing.  As our name says, we are a group of citizens dedicated to protecting these endearing creatures, as extinction of any species bodes ill for our own survival.  

Please look around our website by clicking on the subjects on the menu to your left.  Enjoy learning about the Key deer and their existence on these islands, the threats they face, and about our organization and how we're helping to ensure survival of the Key deer.  And please consider joining KDPA.
