Habitat Key
The Keys Marine Lab is unique in the Keys as its location allows easy access to all of the major habitat types in the area. The Map above gives the locations of habitats near the lab that we often visit with researchers and educators. Click on the habitat types below to launch descriptions of each habitat type and links to photos of those habitats taken by KML employees and visiting researchers.

As there are more sites available to visit than can be listed here, please contact the KML science coordinator before your trip with your specific needs and we will most likely be able to accommodate you.
