Lets Talk About…From the Clean Water Act to Everglades Restoration, April 2015

The Everglades are the largest remaining sub-tropical wilderness in the lower 48 states. They contain both fresh and saltwater areas, open prairies, pine rocklands, tropical hardwood forests, offshore coral reefs, and mangrove forests. The broad spectrum of wildlife living in the Everglades includes aquatic birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians, of which 56 species are endangered or threatened. Twenty-two of these species reside in two National Parks, four National Wildlife
Refuges, and one National Marine Sanctuary, which together draw 1.6 million visitors every year. Join us for a discussion about how conservation efforts in the United States have impacted the Everglades.

This program brings the viewer a series of in-depth discussions from leaders throughout the area on a variety of biotechnical and science subjects.
