CONSERVATION

Care for Wild Mustang Horses in Florida in the USA
Assist in a Center that rescues mustangs that would have been put to death. The horses (who are often close to death when they reach the Center), are nursed back to health and then trained with positive reinforcement and love to become adoptable.

These traumatised horses must spend time with lots of different people, to learn that not all people are bad! This is critical in order for them to be adopted into homes where they'll be well looked after for the rest of their lives.

MORE ABOUT FLORIDA AND THE USA

If you think of the United States, what do you imagine? Big cities and the highest skyscrapers, long sandy beaches overlooking the ocean, scenes of old western movies set in the desert Texas, the New Orleans jazz music, the famous Golden Gate Bridge surrounded by a breathless west coast’s sunset, interesting historical museums, natural parks as Yellowstone...

The United States are all these amazing places! Fifty States represented as stars on the American flag. The only way to begin to get to know the USA is to visit it.

The official language is English, but slang differs from city to city. However, some States are bilingual, such as Louisiana and Maine (English and French), New Mexico (English and Spanish), and Pennsylvania (English and German). The second most popular language is Spanish.

The interest in Arts is extensive in cities like New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington where you can find some of the most prestigious museums of the world. American Art reaches its peak of expression in the cinema field housed in Hollywood. Part of the artistic and historic heritage of the United States comes from the Native Americans, from their handmade products and totems.

ABOUT FLORIDA
Florida is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the USA. The Capital, Tallahassee in the north of Florida, played an important role in Florida’s history. The city has a variety of cultures and heritages and thus many museums and historic districts.

You can find traces of the Apalachee Indians at Lake Jackson Mounds State Archaeological Site and at the Letchworth-Love Mounds State Park. The tropical sun makes this State popular and it's known as “The Sunshine State”. Many tourists from all over the world as well as residents from the Northern States come here looking for sun and fun . and they get it!

Florida’s coasts boast a considerable charm. The beaches are sandy, the water is clear and the climate is warm. But the best feature is the wildlife around this beautiful landscape. What more do you want?

And don’t miss the Florida Keys! The archipelago runs from Miami toward the Gulf of Mexico. The Keys are full of marine species and corals, making it the ideal place for diving, snorkelling and fishing. Some of the most famous beaches include Daytona, Palm Beach, Jacksonville, Naples, Tampa…

Amaze yourself with the abundance and rarity of shells in Sanibel and Captiva Islands! The magnificent stratification of shells is created over thousands of years by streams of the Gulf and the southern seas. Shells have an important role for the ecology of the islands and provide food for birds and fishes. The territory of Florida is also rich of many natural parks. The environment and habitats are still preserved at the J.N “Ding” National Wildlife Refuge in Sanibel. And during December to March there are masses of flocks of pelicans.

Florida is home to NASA’s launch headquarters at Kennedy Space Center. It’s “the only place on Earth where you can tour launch areas, meet a veteran astronaut, see giant rockets, train in spaceflight simulators, and even view a launch”.

ABOUT ORLANDO
If during your project you want to explore the area and you love wildlife, adventure and fun, Orlando is the perfect place to visit. The city is known for its amusement attractions, such as  as Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom Park, Busch Gardens and Universal Studios, “the world's premier movie and TV based theme park”.

But don’t forget the large number of natural parks which are a brilliant alternative to the theme parks. You can observe many bird species in Tosohatchee State Reserve, but also enjoy many activities like hiking, boating and camping in Wekiwa Springs State Park. And why not riding horse or fishing in Lake Louisa State Park?

Downtown Orlando is a residential and commercial area. Here you can experience the real life and nightlife of the city outside the usual tourist tour route.

ABOUT MIAMI
Situated in the South Florida, Miami is a popular tourist destination for visitors and residents. A good part of population has Latin origin and gives to the city its lively and active atmosphere. Indeed, Cubans have been living in Miami since the early 20th century and the picturesque “Little Havana” re-creates the authentic Cuban life.

Miami offers many amusing attractions. The Seaquarium is an opportunity to observe the magnificent exhibitions of sea turtles, seals and sea lion.

If you love animals, you can also explore in an adventurous way the marshland of the Everglades National Park via bicycle trails or by kayak, canoe. If you are lucky you can see alligators, turtles, manatees and, one of the rare Florida panthers who call the Park home. The Everglades National Park is in southern Florida, half land and half water, and is a fragile ecosystem that hosts a large variety of animal species and plants. It’s “the 3rd largest national park in the lower 48 states, behind Yellowstone National Park (2nd) and Death Valley National Park (1st)”.
