>>Less than a year after two state agencies decided to combine forces and remove invasive snakes from the Everglades, contractors caught a record number of Burmese pythons.

The News-Press reported that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Southwest Florida Water Management District removed nearly 2,000 invasive pythons in the first eight months of 2020, surpassing 2019 totals. As of mid-October, the teams removed nearly 4,000 snakes bringing the total snakes removed since the program's inception in 2017 to 6,278.

I have always wondered if those snakes are good to eat  Hell ,if they have killed almost 7,000 of them ,the glades must be eaten up with them

>>>Burmese pythons in the Everglades contain some of the highest levels of mercury found in a living creature.

"For some reason, the pythons that are coming out of here, they have mercury concentrations higher than mine waste, a mercury mine," said Everglades superintendent Dan Kimball. "According to (USGS scientist Dave Krabbenhoft), they've never found anything that has this high of mercury levels that's still alive. It is amazing."

COMING IN DECEMBER: DRAINED, A PODCAST ABOUT THE MASSIVE PLAN TO SAVE THE EVERGLADES

>>>In the final days of his administration, with the eyes of the world on Florida where the epic 2000 election recount was underway, President Bill Clinton quietly signed into law a plan to restore the Everglades. Twenty years and $17 billion later, the grandiose vision of reversing decades of environmental damage remains stuck in the swamp.

In "Drained," a podcast from WMFE and the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting, Amy Green wades into the controversy around one of the most ambitious environmental restoration efforts ever undertaken. From rivers of toxic slime to a mind-boggling plan to inject a giant bubble of freshwater 1,000 feet underground, "Drained" examines the massive plan to restore the river of grass and poses the big question about the future of this natural wonder: Can it be saved?

Too little too late?

"Race against the rise
What should planners do if, as some simulations suggest, sea level rise is already outpacing the efforts by state and federal authorities to restore freshwater flow through the Everglades?"

The Florida Everglades: Appreciating the charms of the River of Grass




>>>In summer 2007, the South Florida Sun Sentinel Travel section — of which I was the editor — asked readers to name "The Seven Wonders of Florida." In the state with the world's most famous theme park, an undramatic national park took top honors.

This was admirable, though it meant that I would have to visit the Everglades, in July, and write a story about it. In 18 years in South Florida — in 18 years as a travel editor in South Florida — I had never been to the park. When I told friends and neighbors of my next assignment, I discovered I was not alone. I wondered if all the readers who had voted for the park had visited it. It never lands on the list of the 10 most visited national parks, even though it's the only one that abuts an urban sprawl of 6million people. Even Marjory Stoneman Douglas, whose book "The Everglades: River of Grass" is credited with bringing the subtle beauty of the place to the nation's attention, rarely ventured past Homestead and never spent the night. "It's enough," she reportedly said, "for me to know it's there."
