Human Impact

  • The Florida everglades is one of the ecosystems most affected by humans.

  • Since around 1900 people have been draining the wetlands for agricultural purposes.

  • The “Central and South Florida Projects” were operations which had canals built to do the draining of the water, into the ocean.

  • The draining caused many native plants to die and promoted the growth of algae.
