Everyone loves South Florida’s subtropical climate – including invasive plants and animals! Invasive species are well-established throughout South Florida’s natural habitats; this invasion can result in the displacement of native species, loss of habitat, alteration of hydrology, changes in natural fire conditions and degradation of public use areas.
Did You Know: the South Florida Water Management District is the largest water management district in Florida and has nine Governing Board members who set policy for the agency? The Governing Board members work to advance the restoration of the Everglades, the largest ecosystem restoration effort in the world. In addition, they oversee thousands of miles of flood control infrastructure and ensure water for millions of Florida families and businesses.
