EVERGLADES, FLORIDA

Country - - AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL -

The south­ern­most tip of Florida has been pre­served as a na­tional park since 1947. Di­verse habi­tats sup­port a va­ri­ety of wildlife. The Everglades are a refuge for such rare, en­dan­gered and threat­ened species as the man­a­tee and the Florida pan­ther. The land also hosts more than 360 species of birds. Long Pine Key, seen here at sun­set, is a crit­i­cal habi­tat for na­tive but­ter­flies and host plants.
