Host Rey Becarra takes us on a trip through the Ten Thousand Islands, a labyrinth of water and mangroves located in the Everglades National Park. We explore the islands’ delicate ecosystems which not only harbor an abundance of life, but the shallow waters also serve as nursery grounds for countless marine species.
