Adjustment to Gopher Tortoise Mitigation Amounts

As of August 27, 2014, mitigation amounts required for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) gopher tortoise permits were increased to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Permit applications submitted after August 26, 2014, will be affected by the new adjusted mitigation rates.
