More of her nature writing and wildlife photography can be seen at South Florida’s Biscayne Bay, its keys, the coral reef and the national park that protects them are celebrated in a new book, Biscayne National Park (Acadia Press), co-authored with James Kushlan, which features Hines’s historic images that together tell 300 years of Biscayne Bay’s story. The book’s publication kicks off the golden fiftieth-year anniversary celebrations of the establishment of Biscayne National Park, which stretches from Key Biscayne to Key Largo and from the mainland shore to the coral reef tract.
