EVERGLADES HEADWATERS NWR AREA DECLARED
We have previously written about a proposed innovative, new National Wildlife Refuge and Conservation Area in Central Florida a number of times, most recently in November of last year. We have also tried to stress the project's IBA [Important Bird Areas] implications.
Last month this project was finally launched, so that the Everglades Headwaters NWR and Conservation Area could eventually embrace 50,000 acres as a refuge along with a broader Conservation Area of up to 100,000 acres of conservation easements.
