As the air warms and the ground thaws, look for many rites of spring on national wildlife refuges. Wood frogs make a cheerful din. Sea turtles nest and bison calve. And migratory birds fly back from southern wintering areas. About a month ago, biologists with the U. Fish and Wildlife Service released two groups of Puerto Rican parrots into a national forest in Puerto Rico — the first birds to fly free in the forest since two hurricanes devastated the region more than two years ago. Of the 30 parrots released, all have survived their first month in the wild. A New Jersey man was found guilty of unlawfully collecting and selling two species of box turtle, including the ornate, or western, box turtle. Fish and Wildlife Service law enforcement agents and partners arrested an Oklahoma man and charged him with offenses under the Lacey Act.
Living with Coyotes
Coyotes are found throughout Florida. According to a FWC report , the presence of coyotes has been documented in all 67 Florida counties. Coyotes arrived in Florida as part of natural range expansion from western states; they now live in every state but Hawaii. This medium-sized canine, a close relative of the domestic dog, is extremely adaptable and can be found in rural, suburban and urban landscapes. They are typically shy and elusive but encounters between people and coyotes in Florida are occurring more often. Coyotes help maintain balanced ecosystems by controlling the populations of rodents and smaller predators, such as foxes, opossums and raccoons, which naturally occur in higher densities and can quickly overpopulate areas of habitat. Coyotes are native to North America, have been in Florida for many years, and will continue to make their homes around the state. Removing coyotes for the purpose of eradication is an inefficient and ineffective method to control populations. New coyotes move into areas where others have been removed. Removal activities such as hunting and trapping place pressure on coyote populations, and the species responds by reproducing at a younger age and producing more pups per litter; populations can quickly return to their original size.
