Why It Matters

WHY IT MATTERS

Rodman Reservoir is home to many species of wildlife, such as eagles, black bears, turkeys, turtles, alligators and a healthy, diverse fish population. We must preserve the lake in its present form.

Draining Rodman Reservoir would displace many endangered or threatened species of wildlife in Florida. It would be devasting to the unique ecosystem and a trajedy to deny future generations a natural paradise such as Rodman.

Rodman Reservoir is not a dying, weed-choked reservoir; it is a complex ecosystem that supports a wide variety of native plants and wildlife, including many species that are currently threatened or endangered in Florida
