This reserve is located in the northern part of the Gulf Coast of Florida. This is undoubtedly one of the very few places that still have the unexploited mangrove wetlands in the North America. This place is protected by the Florida Department of Environment Protection.
Here you will not only find serenity and beauty of the rawness of nature but there are quite a number of migratory birds and rare and endangered species of animals. Here they conserve them in the estuarine habitat where they survive the best. A trip to this place at least once will surely mesmerize you for a long time.
