Green Back Herons, alligators, dragonflies, butterflies and all manner of natural wonders are the stars of this weeks THTV episode, beautifully shot by m ss ng p eces in the Florida Everglades. John Adornato, the Everglades Restoration Program Manager for the National Parks Conservation Association, gives us a personal tour of the glades while highlighting new conservation strategies that seek to regenerate historic water flow. They have recently succeeded in stopping rock mining in the area which is a significant threat to the water supply and to the wildlife. John says that "It took fifty or more years to destroy the Everglades and it might take fifty or more to restore them." This film shows that they are now working hard to conserve this unique eco-system.
