Flamingo Garden's mission is to depict and preserve the natural and cultural heritage of South Florida and the Everglades in our botanical gardens and wildlife sanctuary:
- by providing a repository for endangered plant and wildlife species and a living library of specific taxa available for research and education.
- by inspiring an appreciation for the beauty and diversity of tropical and subtropical plants from around the world that can be grown in our area.
- by guiding the public in environmentally responsible and aesthetic horticultural practices.
- by encouraging environmental awareness and Everglades preservation to visiting tourists, residents, and school children.
