Do not relocate or release gopher tortoises. 
Some gopher tortoises may be carrying an upper respiratory tract disease.  Relocating infected tortoises 
can spread this deadly disease to healthy populations.
Good intentions can be harmful !

Signs around the park will help you understand
some of the many environmental problems

A Natural Divide between the Pine Flatwoods and the
marsh lands is caused by the minute sloping of the land 
that keeps the tidewaters out of the pine forests.
