John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park — Mangroves and Small Islands
The mangroves that populate Pennekamp's shore and outter islands provide critical nesting habitat for birds, some rare, such as the white-crowned pigeon and the mangrove cuckoo. The red mangroves and the shallow waters act as nursery for a host of aquatic animals that are food species further up the food chain, including wading birds and shorebirds — Photo by David Sedore
