A vibrant, family-friendly guide to the unexpected nature found in and around Miami.

Miami may be a bustling city with a vibrant nightlife, but its wildlife is just as wild, if you know where to look. Wild Miami reveals the amazing ecology of this tropical metropolis. Equal parts natural history, field guide, and trip planner, Wild Miami has something for everyone. This handy yet extensive guide looks at the factors that shape local nature and profiles over 100 local species, from beautiful flowers and towering palm trees to manatees and green treefrogs, spotted sunfish, and great blue heron. Also included are descriptions of day trips that help you explore natural wonders on hiking trails and beaches, in public parks, and in your own backyard. 

Genre:

  • “The most notable and engaging features of this work are its incredible color photography and its vibrant layout. Authored by four passionate scientists and conservation professionals, the pictures and their descriptions bring these species and their habitats to life. These alone make the book mandatory. Readers, both leisurely browsers and students, and native Miamians, Floridians, and citizens all over the world will likely find it engaging and enriching.”
