Recently, there have been official reports of mink sightings, a rare mammal that is primary nocturnal. In an effort to learn more about minks, Florida wildlife officials have asked the public to report any sightings.
A tree that has dominated Florida’s wetlands for around 6,500 years, the bald cypress, was also historically an important economical product for the early settlers. By the 1930s Florida was the nation’s leader in cypress tree products. The cypress tree was popular for roof shingles, clocks, tables and mulch, and since has since earned Florida’s protection. One of the most flood resistant trees in the world; the cypress tree’s specialized root system known as ‘knees’, supplies the tree with oxygen by growing up out of the water sometimes in excess of ten feet.
Believe it or not, Wild Florida receives hundreds of visitors from out of the state, and even out of the country, looking for a real Florida airboat tours experience. Stretching from Kissimmee all the way down to South Florida, the Everglades are one of the world’s most unique and precious ecosystems. It’s no wonder our park sees visitors from all across the globe!
