Wild and Wonderful Animals of the Everglades

We will conserve only what we love and we will love only what we understand. You will come to understand why the Everglades is so special. It has been designated as an International Biosphere Preserve and a World Heritage site.

Some questions to be explored:
  • What and where is the Everglades?
  • How has the Everglades changed?
  • Why is getting the water right so important and so difficult?
  • How is the wood stork the goldilocks bird of restoration?
  • What are myths, misunderstandings and mysteries about ‘gators?
  • How have Texas panthers helped Florida panthers to recover?
  • How do wetland birds feed, court, nest and raise young?
