History

Everglades National Park received its official status in 1934, but was fully opened only in 1947. The park faced some difficulties due to soil pollution and the drainage of wetlands, which led to the death of huge ecosystems. Only an incredible effort was able to protect the territory of this reserve, and since 1976 they have become inviolable.

The park was revived for a very long time, and only by 2003 it was possible to almost completely restore the ideal atmosphere throughout the park.

Due to the peculiarities of the combination of predatory and herbivorous animals, visitors to the reserve are strongly advised not to walk in the wrong places and fight off the tour guides.
