The Great Egret, symbol of the National Audubon Society displays its spectacular plummage in the corkscrew Swamp and Sanctuary, located outside of Naples, Florida.

Hunted to near extinction in the 1900's to supply the demands of women's fashion, the Great Egret remains endangered to to encroaching land development in South Florida.

The Audubon society has been protecting these birds and this habitat in Naples, Florida since the 1900's. They purchased 6,100 acres beginning in 1954 and manages the primordial swamp home to the largest remaining bald cypress stand in North America with trees dating 600 years in age. The 2 mile boardwalk provides unprecedented acess to the Sanctuary's many native Florida plants and wildlife.
