The slideshow ‘tells the story’ of Everglades National Park starting with a series of aerial photos to illustrate the landscape features of these extensive wetlands, including the interface between mangrove forests and flooded grasslands, and the characteristic channels and bodies of open water. Raised boardwalks provide visitor access in some areas, where birds and other wildlife can be viewed. Photos of some rare and endangered species found in the Everglades National Park include crocodiles, alligators, manatee, Florida panther, and snail kite. The slideshow continues with images of a wide variety of other animals and plants, providing a sense of what visitors to the park can expect to see from the boardwalks or commercial boat trips.
