The Everglades national park is full of fascinating animals that are so amazing and have so much energy. They rescue the animals that have been damage or endangered and bring them to the park and treat them with love and care them back to perfect health. One of the best ways to experience the Everglades is to get out into it for an extended visit. With 156 miles (251 km) of canoe/kayak and walking trails and 47 designated wilderness campsites, opportunities for solitude are abundant.

The Everglades is a hot mild place, in the summer the temperature can get up to around 90 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity over 90% now that's hot. There is plenty of grass and trees for the animals to go when the temperature gets that hot. There are plenty of activities at the everglades national park you can go camping, canoeing, fishing, lodging.

Florida Bay, the largest body of water within everglades national park, containing more than 800 square miles of marine wetlands, much of Florida's sea grass. The sea grass shelters fish and shellfish and sustains the food chain that supports all higher vertebrates in the bay. The hard bottom areas are home to corals and sponges.

There are some fruits that the fish eats when the fall of the branches. Mangrove forests are found in the coastal channels and rivers around the tip of South Florida. This estuary system is a valuable nursery for shrimp and fish. Many fish in the river of the everglades very bright in color and can be quite dangerous in some way. The everglades is nursery for the animals and their young babies sheltering them for the bigger animals like the birds in the sky or the gators in the waters swimming around looking for food.

The slough is deeper and faster flowing center of a broad marshy river. The marshy river moves at a leisurely pace of 100ft per day. Shark river slough, the river of grass and Taylor slough are narrow eastern branches of rivers. There are series of other slough through the big cypress swamp supply freshwater to western Florida bay and the ten thousand islands.

There are many trees in the everglades one special one is the cypress tree is a delicious and beautiful tree that can survive in the standing waters. The cypress tree in the deep soil in the center grows taller than those on the outside. Stunted cypress trees, called dwarf cypress, grows poorly in dry soil and shallow soil on drier land.

Over the past few years the Florida everglades have been destroyed by the hurricanes and bad weather over a period of time. Some animals unfortunately died because of the weather from the major hurricanes. Now they rebuild the everglades and have lots more animals in it and is back to perfect condition with much larger room for more animals and a bigger staff to care for the animals. Many people from all around the world have visited the national park to see the fascinating animals and to just experience the feeling of the outdoors with the animals and get that anxious feeling of what the animals feel when they in the wild.

The rocks beneath the big cypress swamps are among the oldest in Florida. Sediments of silt, sand and particles of calcium deposited on the bottom of the sea and gradually settled into limestone. Other rocks that settled beneath the everglade swamps were formed during the times of the Great ice age. In quieter waters covering the central portions of the Florida everglades national Park, tiny moss animals called Bryozoans flourished. As they died their calcium skeletons settled to the bottom. These sediments later cemented into rock known as the Miami Bryzoan Limestone.

Development of the Florida's Everglades National Park

Water in South Florida once flowed freely from the Kissimmee River to Lake Okeechobee and southward over low-lying lands to the estuaries of Biscayne Bay, the Ten Thousand Islands, and Florida Bay. This shallow, slow-moving sheet of water covered almost 11,000 square miles, creating a mosaic of ponds, sloughs, saw grass marshes, hardwood hammock, and forested uplands. For thousands of years this intricate system evolved into a finely balanced ecosystem that formed the biological infrastructure for the southern half of the state.
