Audubon has worked for more than a century to protect and restore America's Everglades.
Famous for its abundance of bird life, the Everglades has faced more than a century of challenges. From the murder of Audubon warden Guy Bradley by plume hunters as he fought to protect some of the Everglades’ iconic species, to the devastating changes from the twentieth century efforts to ditch, dike, and drain the watershed for development and agriculture, the Everglades is only now beginning to recover.

Meet George, a Roseate Spoonbill. We know a lot about George because the team at Audubon's Everglades Science Center in Tavernier has been monitoring him and other Roseate Spoonbills nesting in Florida Bay. Learn how George is teaching us about the health of the Everglades in this video by the University of Miami's Orange Umbrella Student Consultancy. Thank you to the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Family Foundation and the Wolfson Family for supporting this video initiative.
