KEY WEST FACTS
The Florida Keys are a string of barrier islands south of the tip of the Florida Mainland.
They are connected by highway 1 that travels 100 miles to Key West- the southernmost point in the continental United States.
Mangroves are one of Florida’s true locals, covering approximately 469,000 acres. These trees thrive in salty environments because they are able to obtain freshwater from saltwater through their roots.
Mangroves Provide a protected habitat, breeding grounds and nursery areas to many terrestrial and marine animals.
Some of the species you will find in our Key West display are:
