In collaboration with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, we’re excited to share this new video highlighting the Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge. The Okefenokee Swamp, which straddles the Florida-Georgia line, is one of the largest remaining intact freshwater ecosystems in North America and covers over 400,000 acres.
Many plants and animals call the Okefenokee home.
Number of Species:
Over 620 species of plants
