The Wild Life of Wildlife

Welcome to the wildlife of the Everglades.

Why do you suppose we call them wild-life?

All the animals of Everglades National Park are free to roam wherever they like. They are not in cages like you would expect at a zoo, nor are they tame like your cat or dog.

In short, they are wild animals!

Come discover the many different types of wildlife you might find on a visit to the Everglades.
