Boardwalk Damaged By 2017 Hurricane To Be Replaced At Everglades National Park

>>>More than two years after a hurricane twisted a boardwalk like a pretzel at Everglades National Park, construction of a new walkway is beginning.

Hurricane Irma in September 2017 ravaged more than a few units of the National Park System as it roared through the Virgin Islands, into Florida, and up the East Coast. At Everglades, the storm uprooted and curled the half-mile boardwalk at West Lake. Now funding through Public Law 115-123, which was passed specifically for national park units significantly impacted by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, is being spent to build a new boardwalk. The project cost $3,453,124 for design, demolition, and construction

Python-hunting extraordinaires wrangle Everglades invasion one snake at a time

Python breeding season has been in full swing since the beginning of December. While male pythons are slithering around seeking out females, python hunters are on the move as well. They want to catch these snakes before the females can lay their eggs.

Professional python hunters Donna Kalil and Amy Siewe said breeding season is always something they look forward to.

This should give @Mudwall Gatewood 3.0 a thrill...

Tell the Army Corps to fix the flow to the everglades -- sign the petition

The floodgates from Lake Okeechobee opened Oct. 14, 2020, forcing polluted water into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries and posing a risk of toxic algae blooms. This government-sanctioned pollution is preventable.

Tell the Army Corps of Engineers to stop future discharges to the northern estuaries by moving more Lake O water to the Everglades during the dry season, when algae is not prevalent and the Everglades and Florida Bay need freshwater. This change in Lake O operations will:

FWC uses dogs to hunt Burmese pythons in the Everglades

https://wsvn.com/news/local/florida/fwc-uses-dogs-to-hunt-burmese-pythons-in-the-everglades/

>>>Dogs have become a new weapon in the fight against an invasive species in the Everglades, and the canines are being trained to pursue Burmese pythons.

The python eradication effort, which has been ongoing for years now, is getting some four-legged back-up.

Giving the Burmese python the boot from the Everglades takes a team effort and creative ideas, so Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, water management and the National Park Service came together and decided it was time to call out the dogs.

Officials want to know who's responsible for several fires in the Everglades





EVERGLADES, Fla. – Several fires have been set intentionally within the last two months near Everglades National Park, officials said.

According to the National Park Service, the fires have cost the park hundreds of thousands of dollars and have endangered staff and park visitors.

The fires have been set specifically in the vicinity of Main Park Road and adjacent roads near the park, NPS reported. These roads are easily accessed through the Homestead entrance.

Everglades National Park and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive [ATF] are investigating the fires.

Officials noted that as South Florida enters into the driest part of the year, the risk of wildfires increases.

Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to contact ATF at ATF at 1-(888)-ATF-FIRE (1-888-283-3473) or the National Park Service Investigative Services Branch Tip Line at 1-888-653-0009.
