Tampa Bay’s warm breezes, sunny days, sandy beaches and bountiful waters provide the perfect habitat for a profusion of flora and fauna. Meet the creatures that inhabit this diverse ecosystem as you explore the mangroves and pine flatwoods where wading birds seek refuge, watch for dolphins from the deck of an eco-boat and observe manatees both in the wild and at a rehabilitation facility. Visit a beach ranked among the best in the country and feast your eyes on beach birds soaring among the sea oats and pine trees and over the blue water of the Gulf of Mexico. Get up close to some of Florida’s most interesting and beautiful creatures on visits to a bird sanctuary and an aquarium, and talk with scientists and other experts about conservation, marine life and avian ecology.
