Miami Mega Mall vs. Everglades National Park
MAY 26, 2018
The Miami-Dade County Commission approved development of ‘the largest shopping mall in North America’ with a vote of 9-1 last week. This fragile ecosystem is home to 344 feathered species, 300 fish species (salt- and freshwater), 50 species of reptiles, 40 mammal species, and 36 listed species (threatened and/or protected). The Miami-Dade Democratic Environmental Caucus submitted a formal letter of concern to the commissioners.
