Historically, the Everglades measured over four million areas and served as a home to indigenous people and thousands of species. Having once spanned down from the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, through Lake Okeechobee and all the way down to Florida Bay and the Florida Keys, the Everglades is now only half of its original size.

Diversions of freshwater, agricultural nutrient pollution and loss of habitat have reduced the life-giving ecosystem so drastically, that the United Nations now considers the Everglades one of the world’s most endangered natural wonders.
