Eco Tourism is in the Florida Keys. Reef Relief, a local non- profit is committed to the survival of the Florida Keys and the coral reefs which it hosts. (http://reefrelief.org) “In the Keys, natural tidal creeks meander through easily accessible mangrove forests and green herons hop among the roots, and mysterious splashing sounds echo from deep within the watery forests.” This week’s experiences describes a sampling of the Florida Keys’ eco- experiences available to all

The waters around Key Largo are an ecologically fascinating place where freshwater from the Everglades mixes with the saltwater of Florida Bay. Everglades National Park abuts the near-shore waters of Key Largo to the west. An array of wildlife awaits within easy reach of the dock, including bottle-nosed dolphin, crocodiles, sea turtles, alligators, and manatees. Highly skilled boat captains and eco-tour outfitters are ready to show them to you.
