Everglades National Park
By: Payton Rhinehart
Have you ever been to Florida? It's likely you have. Maybe you've been to Disney World, Sea World, or Busch Gardens. But have you ever been to the Everglades? I’m just stonewalling you from getting to the paragraph so here are some awesome facts and info about The Everglades National Park.
The Everglades were established on December 6th, 1947. They established it when they came to realize that’s the everglades were in danger of extinction. Some of the people who helped establish it are Ernest F. Coe and Marjory Stoneman Douglas. They're a big part of The Everglades' Birthday Celebration every year.
Many types of animals live in the Everglades. In fact, it's the only place in the USA where crocodiles and alligators live side by side. Here are some other animals: Turtles, snakes, birds, raccoon, skunks, opossums, bobcats, red foxes, white tailed deer, The Florida panther, and manatees. Unfortunately, many turtles, birds, snakes, plants, the American Alligator, Crocodile, manatees and The Florida Panther are all endangered species. Over time, animals could die because of humans polluting the air and land.
