Summary:
The Big Cypress National Preserve consists of 230,000 ha of primarily cypress, pineland, and marsh communities in southwest Florida. Parts of the area have been used for many years for a variety of activities, including farming, grazing, hunting, oil production, logging, camping and hiking. Off-road vehicles have been used extensively in many of these activities. Although human impacts on the preserve are highly visible, to date they have produced few irreversible changes. However, the accelerating growth of South Florida is rapidly increasing recreation and development pressures, and a sound management program will soon need to be implemented in the Big Cypress National Preserve if long-term damage to the area is to be averted.
