One of the most important of these needs is the stewardship of our beautiful but very fragile special ecosystems, central to this preservation effort is the safeguarding of our native birds for they give the keys it's magical, "only here", feel and footprint.
If we lose them, we lose the Keys, which is our mantra, "keep them flying".
