Last stand for Florida wildlands

The 27,000 acre DeLuca Preserve has nearly 1,000 acres of citrus cropland, which is marked in burgundy color and is primarily along the northern boundary. The yellow areas amount to 3,000 acres of unique Florida terrain called dry prairie. The purple area toward the eastern boundary shows nearly 4,000 acres of pine forest that remains mostly dry and serves as high quality habitat for wildlife. The brown indicates nearly 5,000 acres of marsh. The green shows nearly 10,000 acres of pasture. (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.)
