The Florida Everglades Compex, National Park & Ramsar Site is a most beautiful of ecosystems to be found in North America. What you will find here is most orgasmic to any nature lover. Discovering the northern section of the Glades, I found it to be such a rich location for Flora & Fauna. I walked along a canal leading into the Glades & found wildlife all along it. Turtles were laying eggs along the shoreline as hungry Gators watched them. It was such a delight to experience all the wildlife in one place.

2014 Commemorative coin for the Florida Everglades.


Alligators, Crocodiles & much much more was found in the Southern Point of the Everglades National Park. On the drive in to Flamingo Visitor Center (FVC) there were so many great things to see & wonder at. The majority of these photos were taken at the FVC. All in all I had the most wonderful time visiting the Everglades NP & it proved itself to be a great Ramsar Site & well worthy of being a Wetland of International Importance.
