The 729,000 acre Big Cypress National Preserve was established in 1974. The preserve is made up of unique sub-tropical wetlands, ancient cypress swamps, lush pine islands and hardwood hammocks. It is home to a diversity of wildlife, including the Florida Panther, the Red Cockaded Woodpecker, the Big Cypress Fox Squirrel, and the Florida Bonneted Bat.
