The Florida Everglades are once again in the conservation headlines as a real estate group wins rights to drill for oil within the greater ecosystem. The company, Kanter Real Estate, can now legally build an oil well near the Broward/Miami-Dade County Line. The region has been the subject of much conservation worries dealing with the red tides and massive fish kills due to poor water management. The fight, however, is not totally lost as the company still has to win a few permit fights in Broward County.
