Florida's marshes are listed as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site because of the natural environment in which many rare animal species live.

The Marshes National Park has been designated a wildlife refuge since President Harry S. Truman. Countless alligators, American sharp-snouted crocodiles, herons, wood storks and shovelers, American manatees, and others are found here.

Interestingly, the reserve is a very slow flowing river. The main road that runs through the preserve connects the city of Florida, located on the east coast, with Flamingo, located on the Gulf of Mexico. It is called "Alligator Alley" because of the hundreds of animals that can be seen while traveling this road.
