One of the most biologically diverse places on Earth, from sawgrass to cypress trees, apple snails to alligators. The historic home of Florida’s Miccosukee and Seminole tribes. A national park.
The ecosystem that ensures fresh drinking water for more than 8 million Floridians.
Everglades advocate Marjory Stoneman Douglas talked about all this in an interview in 1983.
