Alligator crossing the Anhinga Trail. NPS photoThe winter dry season is the best time for wildlife viewing in the park. Weather conditions are generally pleasant during the winter and standing water levels are low, causing wildlife to congregate at central water locations. Shark Valley, the Anhinga Trail (at Royal Palm), and Eco Pond (one mile past the Flamingo Visitor Center) are good for viewing alligators, wading birds, and other freshwater wildlife.
Canoeists can paddle into Snake Bight (near Flamingo) and Chokoloskee Bay (Gulf Coast) before low tide to witness large numbers of water birds feeding in the shallows and on mud flats. A productive freshwater canoeing area is Nine Mile Pond and adjacent borrow pits (11 miles, or 18 km, up the road from Flamingo).See Also: Tropical Seasonal Forest Animals

Out of a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the hot blueness from the Florida sky, ran a little, tawny-haired boy.

Plants and animals from all over the world arrive in South Florida’s ports every day. Some of these nonnative species escape from their cages, aquariums, or garden beds into the wild. Some are intentionally released. Some take well to the subtropical climate and rapidly increase and expand their populations. We call these species invasive when they hurt the environment, the economy, and/or human health.
Hundreds of invasive species now call South Florida home, harming our agricultural and tourism industries, our native plants and animals, and our quality of life. Invasive species complicate and slow down restoration of America's Everglades ecosystem. Governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations, and universities are working together to address this growing problem within the Everglades Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area.
