Which Ocklawaha Animal Are You?
You are a Florida manatee! Scientists estimate that a restored Ocklawaha River system will provide essential warm water winter habitat for many hundreds of manatees. This habitat is needed as 60% of Florida’s manatees currently depend on unsustainable power plants for warmth in the winter months.
You are a Florida panther! Restoring the Ocklawaha River will strengthen the “O-to-O” corridor between the Ocala and Osceola National Forests, providing abundant habitat and prey for Florida’s panthers.
You are a Florida black bear! Restoring the Ocklawaha River will enhance the “O-to-O” corridor between the Ocala and Osceola National Forests, providing abundant habitat and food for Florida’s black bears.
You are a bald eagle! Restoring the Ocklawaha River will provide important forested wetland habitat and improve biodiversity for fish, an important food source for the bald eagle.
You are a white-tailed deer! A restored Ocklawaha River will benefit white-tailed deer by improving the forest habitat in which this herbivorous species thrives.
