The South Florida Natural Resources Center (SFNRC), a division of Everglades National Park (ENP), was established in 1978 to serve four National Park Service units: Everglades National Park, Dry Tortugas National Park, Biscayne National Park, and Big Cypress National Preserve. In addition to serving the four park units, the center was also given the unprecedented mandate to address the impacts of activities taking place outside park boundaries. This unique charter requires that center scientists conduct scientific inquiries into the ecology of the region as a whole, and evaluate the impacts that land-use and water resources management actions have on the freshwater, estuarine, and coastal ecosystems of south Florida.
