With its plethora of inlets, deep water canals, coves and estuaries, this habitat is home to hundreds of species of plant, sea and animal life who need a helping hand to keep flourishing.
Most of the luxurious residential communities that have grown in the area over the last 50 years are committed to sustaining this special environment, with acres of land given over to nature preserves. Why not see just how beautiful this area is on World Oceans Day, taking place this year on June 9th.
This special event, recognized by the United Nations, is held worldwide to encourage individuals to think about what the ocean means to them, and what it has to offer us with hopes of conserving it for future generations.
