Florida Everglades
Florida is a state rich in a natural diversity of plants, animals and ecosystems. Encompassing nearly 66,000 square miles, Florida is home to a tremendous diversity of species that live in varied land and water habitats.

In the hardwood hammocks near Key West, you might see the endangered Stock Island tree snail. In the surf at Fernandina, you could find three species of sea turtles that we protect, and in the dunes at Perdido Key, you could spot the burrows of Perdido Key beach mice. Along that route, you would cross about 15 major rivers with Spanish, Anglo and Native American names like Santa Fe, St. John’s and Choctawhatchee. Those rivers hold manatees, American crocodiles, Gulf sturgeon and many species of freshwater mussels.
