Water, water everywhere: That’s the beauty of Biscayne, where 95 percent of the park is covered by wetlands and sea. With only one mile of paved roadway in 170,000 acres, this marine wonderland is a perfect place to boat, snorkel, dive, or fish—if you take care not to damage the delicate reefs below. Ironically, a major threat to this coastal ecosystem is the lack of freshwater flowing into the region due to nearby development—something NPCA is working hard to improve.
