Spring 3-1978


Pictured are two wading birds that are native to the Everglades. This is a very biologically diverse area, being home to many rare and endangered species of birds, plants, and animals. Some of these species include: the great blue heron, the Florida panther, the American alligator, and mangrove trees. Due to the tampering of it’s landscape by humans, the Everglades has experienced much water loss and as a result species are also slowly declining in numbers.
