Everglades Ecosystem Services

Mather Economics has completed an estimate of the economic value of a restored Everglades ecosystem.  The Everglades Foundation hired Mather Economics to complete the study, and the preliminary findings were presented in Washington DC at the Everglades Summit.  Mather Economics collected data on water supply, water quality, real estate, tourism, commercial & recreational fishing, hunting, and habitat within the area of Florida affected by the Everglades.  We developed models of each subject area that measured the difference a restored Everglades ecosystem would make to the economy.
