The volunteer kiosk for Florida Black Bear National Scenic Byway was installed in Umatilla years ago, and panels will be updated before the Florida Wildlife Festival this Saturday, Oct. 20 in Cadwell Park. Umatilla is one of 4 gateway cities to the Florida Black Bear National Scenic Byway, and the festival celebrates the Black Bear and other wildlife of the region. Great learning experience for children!

When you truly want the best of the best, in Miami there is only one way to tour the city!!! The Mercedes Executive Sprinter or the 2018 Lincoln Navigator! Give yourself and your family what they truly deserve! The gift of Miami!

So thankful for the great work of conservationists now and throughout the decades who have worked tirelessly to preserve crucial acres of natural, wild Florida. These spaces are not only refuges for people, but vital wildlife corridors and havens for diverse ecosystems. Why have one reason to preserve when you have a million? 💙

Join us in celebrating our staff member, Julie Austin, for all her hard work and dedication in educating the youth of the greater Tampa Bay area! Today is the second work anniversary for when Julie joined the Nature’s Academy flock and we couldn’t be more proud. Julie has been sharing her knowledge of native flora and fauna, while also working directly with schools to prepare students for our STEM and marine science-based outdoor field trips. Julie is a perfect example of what it means to be a tool of change. Remember, we are all stronger when we stand together! 🌴🌊💙 #EverydayNature #Florida #Wildlife #Nature #NaturesAcademy #Science #STEM #NonProfit #EnvironmentalStewardship #StPetersburgFL #Bradenton #TampaBay #SarasotaBay #ReusableWaterBottles #WildlifeEarth #OutdoorFieldTrips #MarineScience #OutdoorEducation #STEMLiteracyProject #FieldTrips #LoveTampaBay #Estuary #EstuaryConservation #KeepFLWild #SupportPositiveChange #StrongerTogether #ToolsOfChange #NaturesAcademyFlock

Sunrise over the ‘glades. Water Conservation Area 3A North to be precise. Contrary to what many people think, not all of the Everglades is encapsulated in a national park.

Have you met a Tricolored Heron yet? Thanks to @anai.colyer for the close-up and the info below!👇🏽#tagustuesday #KeepFLwild #Repost @anai.colyer
・・・The Tricolored Heron. I see these birds often and everywhere in Florida but they are listed as a State-designated Threatened species. Due to the continued development of wetlands, alterations to the hydrology of foraging areas and oil spill impacts to critical breeding and foraging areas. These threats are faced by all birds that inhabit estuaries which is probably most of the birds that reside and visit Florida. Pesticide runoff causes algae blooms that suffocate the birds prey and cause the water to become toxic to all who enter. Florida is in quite a crisis right now with red tide threatening our beaches and coastal waterways. A great way to help is to vote for politicians that give a damn about the health of the environment we all live in both animals and humans.

#Repost from @carltonward // “In a state whose original nature is being carved into smaller and smaller fragments, it gives me hope to know that Florida black bears like this beast are sloshing through the Everglades at this very moment, and that Florida seven bear populations spread from Naples to Pensacola can still be reconnected if we make it a priority to save the #FloridaWildlifeCorridor. It is easy to forget that the wildness of this swamp bear still survives amongst the relentless development that will cut off the Everglades from the rest of America if we let it.

I can’t get enough of Pine Rocklands! This is one of the few places that resemble the ecosystem in its most natural state in metropolitan Miami.

Lets continue the dangerous animal theme with a Diamond-back Rattle Snake. This is a baby at about 16 inches long. He/she is facing right lower corner if you can’t tell. I asked the guy next to me if he would move the dead foliage so I can get a better shot. He declined. This is the first time seeing one of these in 25 years of living here. Awesome.

WE ARE HERO: Photo and story: @CarltonWard | The corner of the northern Gulf of Mexico where Hurricane Michael made landfall is known as the Forgotten Coast. My prayers are with the people, many of whom lost their homes and businesses to tornado strength winds and tremendous storm surge. I’m thinking about towns like Apalachicola, where 80 percent of households depend upon Gulf fisheries for their livelihoods, and remembering my time there during the last Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition. In this photo, third generation Apalachicola Kendall oysterman Schoelles tongs for oysters in St Vincent Sound where one million acres of contiguous protected land extend north from the coast, providing crucial wildlife habitat while helping ensure the health of the estuary downstream. Oysters filter the bay to clean the water. In that way, Kendall and oyster men and women like him are protecting the Gulf for all of us, especially as they plant new oyster beds that also help buffer the coast against storms. I trust Kendall has weathered this hurricane. He and his family have weathered storms on the Gulf for more than a century. Hopefully he will be tonging for oysters and caring for the bay again soon. Maybe there will be a silver lining and the hurricane will have dissipated the red tide that has been plaguing the Gulf this summer, arguably exacerbated by pollution from millions of coastal residence who don't live in balance with the ecosystem the way Kendall does. But the Gulf is resilient and balance and sustainability are possible if we all pay attention and do our part. Long live the Forgotten Coast. #wehero #GulfofMexico #ForgottenCoast #FloridaWild #KeepFLWild #TurntheTide

An Irma-battered black mangrove stands to greet another beautiful day in the Florida Keys.
I'm not sure if this poor tree is struggling to live, or if it's given up the ghost. The roots still have color. I'm hoping it's going to grow a leaf or two soon.
Saturday was the first time I've been down in the Keys since Irma, and I gotta tell you, I was amazed at how well the community seems to have bounced back, given the extent of the damage I can see was wreaked on the islands based on their natural areas. It's still beautiful down there, just... different. That poor coastline got a thrashing, and is still struggling to rebound.
But there *is* new life starting to push through. In one area that is still off limits, (I'm a terrible person) in among all the broken and dead trees, I saw black mangrove seeds starting to sprout, and there are already a few small new trees starting to grow. Good news for the fragile coastal ecosystem, and for the Keys residents, whose livelihoods depend on it's health. 💚

@Regran_ed from @steffleigh - I was so preoccupied watching this Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae) fluttering about and sipping on Florida Paintbrush (Carphephorus corymbosus) to see the other pollinators buzzing around. It is amazing the different insects, large and small, I find on wildflowers.
