Boating Ecotourism Extension Program
The Indian River Lagoon
The Indian River Lagoon is the most biologically diverse estuary in North America and is home to a wide variety of wildlife with over 300 birds, 600 fish, and 2,000 plant species found in this distinct ecosystem.
The abundance of birds such as ospreys, great blue herons, and brown pelicans, mammals such as dolphins and manatees, fish such as mullet and redfish, and reptiles such as sea turtles and alligators makes the Lagoon a great place to see wildlife. Brevard County is also home to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and launch pads and Port Canaveral. Both of these attractions can be viewed from the water with their history being seen from a different point of view.
