    About time, too. While learning to fly along the Space Coast, after turning to view the Space Shuttle landing site, we would continue west away from the coast, and in a minute, we would be over Jurassic Park. Have you ever driven through "Alligator Alley"? The fences point _OUT_ to keep people from wandering into the Everglades. It is no place for an unarmed - heavily armed - human. We think that we are the dominant species on this planet, but about 90% of it is uninhabited by humans. When Walmart and Chick-Fil-A are gone, the wilderness will return... We share a lot of cultural perspectives, Maph, but this is not one of them.

      I grew up in FL and agree. The environmental issue there is the watershed leading up to the everglades drying up.
      Although we now recognize that WalMart has the right of imminent domain as a result of the SCOTUS decision in New London.

    "Thanks to urban development, fire suppression, and invasion of exotic species, the habitat is now severely threatened. "

    So we shouldn't build homes, we should let the homes we have burn down, and we should use magic to keep 'exotic species' from invading the area.

    More simply, "Think of it as evolution in action"

    Oh, btw... that's not a "forest". It's "woods" at best.

    Okay, let's leave this "fragile forest" alone and drain a few miles of swamp... I mean wetland... for urban development...
