Fort Foster State Historic Site, on the Hillsborough River. Although we’ve visited this site many times over the years these photos are from our first visit. Several factors make Fort Foster one of the most unique of all the Second Seminole War sites. This fort was constructed on this site in 1836 to guard the vital bridge crossing over the Hillsborough River, it was garrisoned off and on until the late 1840’s when it was abandoned. The fort deteriorated until 1972 when the site was placed on the National Register and in 1980 this reproduction was built on what archeologists have determined is, within a few degrees, the exact footprint of the original fort. This site also has the distinction of being one of the few verifiable battle grounds that are known to the public as the indians attacked this fort and the bridge several times during the course of the war. An interesting footnote, a documented site where DeSoto forded this river lies very near this site.

Going with the flow!

Duckweed tends to be associated with eutrophic conditions but can also play a role in bioremediation... not to mention a good source of protein! @lifesurvivalflorida 🌱 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱 #getoutside #with #lifesurvival #guidelife #duckweed #realflorida #endlessflorida #floridaexplored #hiking #canoe #kayaking #igdaily #natureisbeautiful #optoutside #nature #authenticflorida #lovefl #keepitwild #keepflwild #videooftheday #timelapse

The other day, September 15th, was International Coastal Cleanup Day. Many across the state got together to clean areas such as this that line the coast and specifically Biscayne Bay. Biscayne Bay, is a beautiful estuary that is home to countless species that we should all have a part in protecting. Not only on a single day, but everyday you’re out there, take a bag and help keep the Bay clean.

The historic Carysfort Lighthouse used to warn ships of the dangerous shallow reef 6 miles off Key Largo. Constructed to include living quarters, the lighthouse was completed in 1852 & decommissioned in 2015. The Carysfort Sanctuary Preservation Area (SPA) is the largest SPA in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Amazing shots captured by @jstormer100 ☀️

As he sucked my thumb, I told this little snooklet to just keep swimming. Things will hopefully be well again soon.

Regrann from @natgeo - Photo by @CarltonWard | Meet the Florida panther — the last subspecies or puma remaining in the eastern US and Florida's state animal that shows us what we need to do to keep our state wild. This frame was captured on Babcock Ranch using a custom made camera trap. I’ve been working in this area for two years for my #pathofthepanther project with @NatGeo @myfwc @fl_wildcorridor and recently @nature_org. A male panther like this one has a home range of 200 square miles — and area so large that outside of Big Cypress National Preserve multiple properties are usually required to support a single panther. That makes panthers excellent ambassadors for protecting the statewide network of public and private lands that makeup #FloridaWildlifeCorridor. And if we don’t protect the Corridor, panthers will not have access to enough of their historic habitat to recover to sustainable numbers. But by investing in conservation in the Everglades Headwaters and beyond, we have a chance to restore panthers to their former range throughout the eastern US for the benefit of people and wildlife. #panther #floridawild #keepflwild - #regrann
