Jeff Gore, Florida Game & Fresh Water Fish Commission posting a sign to protect Snead's Cave in Florida. Following protection, its nursery colony of a few thousand Southeastern myotis (Myotis austroriparius) grew to approximately 250,000. However, when we protected it, we were unaware that it could flood during hurricanes. Decades later nearly the entire colony drowned when trapped by a severe hurricane. Conservation
