Fort Myers is home to some wondrous wildlife. Dolphins and manatees are frequent visitors to the island's waterways. Bald eagles can be seen nesting at the golf clubs, while ospreys prefer tall poles throughout the community. Herons, egrets, pelicans, ibis, oystercatchers, and other tropical seabirds are abundant. The fishing is some of the most sought-after in the country. In nearby wildlife refuges, you'll catch glimpses of alligators, otters, and even the rare Florida panther.
