Helpful Hint: Weather in the summer may cause bugs to be more active and you should not come if you are not prepared to go.

Affects
 
There are many impacts that affect the well being of the Everglades. For example, the Hurricane Andrew passed right through where the Everglades are causing quite a bit of damage. Also one of the biggest problems in the world is affecting the Everglades, Global Warming. This problem is causing a forcasted drought this year (2008) for the Everglades which is not good for the wildlife.
