More orchid and bromeliad species grow here in Fakahatchee than anywhere else on the continent of North America – an amazing 44 species of orchids and 14 bromeliad species are native to the area! Wildlife is abundant and can be seen easily, even from the boardwalk. Alligators both large and small are frequently seen and heard – at the end of the boardwalk is a deeper area of water where large alligators can often be spotted.
