The South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force (SFERTF) consists of members who are top level policy makers, representing tribal, federal, state, and local government, working together on the largest ecosystem restoration project in the world: the greater Everglades ecosystem.
The Working Group (WG) consists of members who are Florida-based, top level policy makers, representing tribal, federal, state, and local governments, working together on the restoration of the Greater Everglades ecosystem.
The Science Coordination Group (SCG) supports the Task Force in its efforts to coordinate the scientific aspects of the restoration of the South Florida ecosystem, and includes both senior managers and scientists appointed by the Task Force.
Who We Are
The Everglades is recognized both nationally and internationally as one of the world’s most unique natural and cultural resources. Encompassing nearly 4 million acres of the southern tip of the Florida peninsula the Everglades and the greater Everglades ecosystem (spanning from the Kissimmee River basin north of Lake Okeechobee all the way south to Florida Bay) are also the focus of the world’s largest intergovernmental watershed restoration effort.
