MIRA USA In addition to its ongoing work in activities that benefit migrants in the United States with immigration workshops, and other community-based activities in various settings, it also focuses on projects that help the environment and Believes that the human being has an intrinsic responsibility to take care of the planet earth. It is a fact that the civil, mining and agricultural expansion every year becomes invasive of the aerial natures of our planet, thus notably causing a climate change, which has had an impact on the environment around the world. MIRA USA serves as an information channel, which is essential for making decisions that affect the present and future of our communities.

Big Cypress protects more than 720,000 acres of this vast marsh and has several plants of temperate and tropical climate, like the exotic phantom orchid.  Also, it is in danger of extinction and has a rich fauna, which includes the red, the panther, the Glen and the wide variety of birds, which are more abundant During the dry season (November to April) when immigrating northern. The Big Cypress National Preserve, a difference from the Everglades, is mainly fed by rainwater and is essential for the health of the estuary rivers located on the southwest coast of Florida (which are an excellent source of Seafood) and the water of nearby streams, tales like the Everglades.

South Florida is known for having the most studied wetlands in the world. Numerous efforts are continuously being made to advance real solutions for the conservation of this area, which have the protection of the sea water flow and replicate these innovations in other parts of the world. That is why the efforts of biologists, conservationists, and hunters, who in this case have repeatedly joined in the past to defend this swamp, must be articulated with legislators and community members for the right of this area and the Regions that need solutions in different parts of the world to protect our environment.

For MIRA USA it is essential that members of the community learn firsthand, enjoy, and transmit all the experiences gained during this visit to the "Big Cypress National Preserve." We believe that knowledge and recognition that there is a problem is the first step to a solution. MIRA USA aims to bring more members of the community to this area. With this, MIRA USA seeks to benefit not only the participants of the visits but the people living in South Florida.
