Everglades

Everglades National Park is the United States' largest subtropical wilderness that protects an unparalleled landscape filled with flora and fauna that blend life from the Caribbean tropics with more familiar species from temperate North America.

At nearly 1.5 million acres in size -- but still only 20 percent of the historic Everglades ecosystem -- the park provides important habitat for numerous rare and endangered species like the manatee, American crocodile, and the elusive Florida panther. (Source: National Park Service)
