Everglades Foundation Launches “Everglades Stories”


What do a teacher from Orlando, a fishing guide from Islamorada and a realtor from Naples have in common? They all have a story to share about the Everglades and their connection to this ecosystem.

The Everglades Foundation has launched “Everglades Stories from Across the Watershed,” a series of 20 short videos documenting stories of individuals living in different regions across the Everglades watershed. The project aims to showcase the profound ways in which people connect with the Everglades while shedding light on the impact of environmental degradation and the importance of restoration projects on their day-to-day lives.

The initiative’s webpage features an interactive map of Florida, allowing visitors to click on different regions and delve into narratives shared by the featured individuals. The experience enables viewers to develop an understanding about the relationship between the Everglades and its communities.

“Everglades Stories showcases the diverse range of individuals whose lives are intertwined with the Everglades ecosystem,” said Begoñe Cazalis, Director of Communications at The Everglades Foundation. “Through these personal narratives, we aim to foster a greater appreciation for the Everglades and its significance in our daily lives. We hope other Floridians see themselves in these stories and are inspired to learn more about how Everglades restoration helps them.”
