Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. The area boasts rare and endangered species, such as the American crocodile, Florida panther, and West Indian manatee. It has been designated an International Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site, and a Wetland of International Importance, in recognition of its significance to all the people of the world. The open waters of Florida Bay and the Ten Thousand Islands represent roughly one-third of the park's total acreage. Boats are the perfect way to explore some of the more remote areas of the park. One of the best ways to experience the Everglades is to get out into it for an extended visit. With 156 miles (251 km) of canoe/kayak and walking trails and 47 designated wilderness campsites, opportunities for solitude are abundant. Most of the wilderness campsites are only accessible by boat. Safely exploring a wilderness by water requires careful preparation and planning. Permits are also required
