Florida Wildlife Magazine – 1974

This is the May 1974 issue of Florida Wildlife magazine.

It has an article on the issues facing Florida’s wildlife in connection with the newly created federal Endangered Species Act of 1973. Signed into law by President Richard Nixon in December 1973, the act has a two-fold objective: To prevent the extinction of plants, fungi and animals and to recover species to the point where the law’s protections are not needed.

There is also an article on Chinsegut Hill in Hernando County, not too far from the town of Brooksville.
