Everglades National Park Management Objectives

Preserve Everglades National Park Resources

  • Hydrological conditions within Everglades National Park and the South Florida ecosystem are characteristic of the natural ecosystem prior to Euro-American intervention, including water quality, quantity, distribution and timing.
  • Everglades National Park is restored and protected in ways that allow natural processes, functions, cycles, and biota to be reestablished and maintained in perpetuity, and that allow archeological and historical resources to be appropriately preserved.

Provide For Public Use and Enjoyment

  • Visitors to Everglades National Park have the opportunity to experience the park's unique subtropical wilderness values.
  • The public understands and appreciates Everglades National Park and its role in the South Florida ecosystem and provides support in achieving the park's purpose.


  • The Seminole and Miccosukee Tribes have the opportunity to exercise their existing tribal rights within Everglades National Park to the extent and in such a manner that they do not conflict with the park purpose.
