South Florida may not be the first destination that comes to mind when planning an environmental walkabout. But maybe it should. A narrated journey through the Sunshine State’s Everglades is a once in a lifetime adventure, and a powerful reminder of just how spectacular the area truly is. If you haven’t considered an Everglades Eco-tour, here are a few reasons why you should.
Ecotourism In the Florida Everglades Is Unparalleled
Have you heard the word ecotourism tossed about in conservation but weren’t sure exactly what it meant? You’re not alone. Many people confuse appreciating the environment with taking steps to improve or raise awareness about it. The good news is, you can do both, and an Everglades eco-tour is how. Pristine natural environments like the ‘glades provide habitat for unique plant and wildlife and are extraordinary to see in person. With robust educational value, undisturbed ecosystems that are relatively untouched by human intervention offer families, students and outdoor enthusiasts the chance to experience an environmental adventure that’s entertaining and educational.
Foster a Greater Appreciation For America’s Wetland
Most of us remember learning something about wetland conservation in grade school. However, it’s a safe bet that at the time, few of us knew what that meant or how these areas could impact our lives. South Florida’s Everglades is a primary example. A wetland of international significance, the Everglades has a profound impact on millions of Florida residents and restoration efforts have become the topic of much debate in 21st century politics.
For those of us living in the Sunshine State, maintaining the health of the Everglades is important for a variety of reasons – beyond the simple fact that the river provides drinking water for millions of residents. With scores of wildlife relying on the area for survival, many of them endangered, the Everglades ecosystem is extraordinarily fragile and taking steps to protect it makes sense.
An Everglades Eco-tour Adventure
The Florida Everglades is renowned for its sights and sounds – a unique and extraordinary environment filled with alligators, exotic tropical birds and some of the most unusual plant life in South Florida. A river with international notoriety, the Everglades draws tens of thousands of tourists each year looking to get a glimpse of one of the nation’s most spectacular natural attractions. When you’re ready to schedule an Everglades eco-tour, be sure to consider Everglades Holiday Park, a family fun destination in Fort Lauderdale offering airboat tours, live alligator presentations and more.
