Excerpt

Welcome to Everglades National Park!
 
Imagine a place where alligators and crocodiles coexist. Where manatees float just beneath the surface of a slow-moving river. And where black panthers prowl the dense tropical woodlands. That’s just what you’ll find in Everglades National Park, a protected area of wetlands in southeast Florida. Made up of marshes, swamps, a river, and a bay, Everglades serves as host to an abundance of wildlife, from algae to alligators. It’s here where more than 700 kinds of plants, 120 types of trees, and countless animals (including many on the endangered species list) grow and thrive, making Everglades one of the most ecologically diverse parks on the planet.
