Miccosukee Tribe wants their Everglades land flooded again

Eager to see Everglades land returned to something closer to its natural state, the Miccosukee Tribe agreed to give up the chance to develop 7,900 acres of land so it could be flooded and wet again, the Sun-Sentinel reports. The South Florida Water Management District will spend $600,000 to plug a canal that drains the land. The tribe and the water district have often fought over water-flow issues in the Everglades.

There are so many things a person could say about this. One thing I could say is that it’s clear the Miccosukees are still in love with their land.
