“Alligator Harbor is one of the world’s largest feeding grounds for the Kemp’s ridley turtle, which is the rarest and most endangered of all marine turtles. The area’s abundance of blue crabs, jellyfish, shellfish and seagrass provide an important food source for all sea turtles. The unspoiled waters and beaches are valuable breeding and nesting grounds for marine sea turtles. Alligator Harbor, in addition to being a valuable natural resource, is also archeologically rich with several Miccosukee/Seminole Indian artifacts and burial mounds surrounding the harbor.”
