“’Indicator park’ for climate change”

Dry Tortugas National Park sits at the end of the line of islands and keys streaming into the Gulf of Mexico from the southern tip of Florida. The park is located 100 miles from the Everglades and 100 miles from Havana, Cuba. As part of the Everglades and Dry Tortugas Biosphere Reserve, established by UNESCO in 1976, the park provides an especially useful laboratory for studying and monitoring the effects of climate change.
