The park is home to an incredible diversity of life including over 600 native fish, neo-tropical water birds, and many threatened and endangered species including sea turtles, manatees, and the Schaus' swallowtail butterfly.

The park preserves unique marine habitat and nursery environments that sustain diverse native fishery resources and support world-class fishing for spiny lobster, snapper, grouper, tarpon and bonefish.
