Many of us who are concerned about wildlife on Marco Island have been monitoring this situation closely. It's not supposed to be easy and fast to get permits to destroy gopher tortoise habitat and relocate gopher tortoises, so a lot about this project has seemed suspicious. A good journalist could probably uncover at least incompetence and perhaps illegality as well. MIA has not set a good example in this matter. You can read more and see photos of the site in its present state here:

We should all appreciate the wisdom of Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation (http://marcoeaglesanctuaryfoundation.com) in securing land to protect eagles before this kind of havoc destroyed their nesting habitat. More and more of us have to come together to advocate for and protect all our natural treasures - eagles, gopher tortoises, burrowing owls, native songbirds, and more. Otherwise, this depressing story will be repeated again and again.
