More Than Margaritaville

Boasting the world's third-largest coral barrier reef system, the Florida Reef Tract is home to thousands of marine species, including corals, fish, sponges, and mollusks.
Nesting species, such as the roseate tern and the white-crowned pigeon, also find sanctuary here.
Mangrove swamps further augment the ecological richness of the Keys, playing dual roles as nurseries for young fish and as bulwarks against coastal erosion.
The hardwood hammocks, with their dense tropical vegetation, offer refuge to various birds, butterflies, and other fauna.
Creating a Community That Cares
The rich biodiversity of the Keys faces threats from climate change, coral bleaching, pollution, and overfishing. And that's why, through our Buy One, Plant One® initiative, we're working to replant and restore mangrove ecosystems across the globe.
