Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks

Everglades National Park is a public park for the benefit of the people. 1.3 million acres of the park is set aside as a permanent wilderness, preserving essential primitive conditions including the natural abundance, diversity, behavior, and ecological integrity of the unique flora and fauna. It is the first national park dedicated for its biologic diversity as opposed to its scenic vistas. Keeping these goals in mind park staff strive to protect the resources while providing opportunities for the best experience possible to each and every visitor. The park publishes an annual report describing the successes and challenges each year in managing these unique resources. This report can provide the public a better understanding of this special place.

These reports cover the park's fiscal year which begins October 1 and goes through September 30. Click on the links below for annual reports from identified years.
