The Florida Grasshopper Sparrow is a highly endangered species located on habitat around Avon Park Bombing Range in the Kissimmee Basin. This NPR story discusses some of the problems we are having with this species. There is another sparrow that is also highly endangered located in the Everglades. That species is the Cape Sable seaside sparrow. Last year we experienced extreme rain events that effected the breeding and nesting success for both of these sparrow species. The populations of both have dropped significantly over the last couple years. We are now waiting to see how both of these species do in 2017. http://www.npr.org/2016/10/20/498736786/last-gasp-to-save-the-florida-grasshopper-sparrow-from-extinction

Federal and State partners are working to improve conditions in Florida Bay through a variety of projects, including bridging Tamiami Trail, increasing flows to Shark River Slough, and storing water along the eastern boundary (South Dade Detention Basins). But it isn't happening fast enough.   http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/25/politics/national-park-anniversary-florida-everglades/index.html
