Materials in this collection are either mounted with permission of copyright holders or are not protected by copyright as far as the consortium partners are aware. Those mounted with permission of the copyright holder include items from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Papers at the University of Miami. Additionally, the reproduction of some materials may be restricted by privacy and/or publicity rights. The responsibility for making an independent legal assessment of an item and securing any necessary permissions ultimately rests with persons desiring to use the item.
If you wish to publish or reproduce materials from Reclaiming the Everglades in any physical or digital form beyond that permitted by fair use, or use them for any commercial purpose, including display or Web page use, you must obtain prior written permission from the owning repository.

The project partners have provided in the catalog records for these materials all known information regarding the author, photographer, publisher or other persons associated with the materials.
