The Everglades

At almost 1.4 million acres, Everglades National Park is the third largest national park in the lower 48 states after Death Valley and Yellowstone. It is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States and is home to 36 rare and endangered species including the Florida Panther, the West Indian Manatee, and the American Crocodile. The everglades has been designated a World Heritage Site, an International Biosphere Reserve, and a Wetland of International Importance. The star of the show of course is the American Alligator.


More than 350 species of birds, 300 species of fresh and saltwater fish, 40 species of mammals, and 50 species of reptiles live within Everglades National Park. This is a Roseate Spoonbill so named because of the spoon shape of its bill. This enables the bird to catch and hold onto the fish it eats.

Tram Tour

One of the ways to see the park is the Tram Tour at Shark Valley.
