There is also other news.
The Refuge is working on removing condemned Vista buildings: the caretakers' double wide, the grill shed, and the barn. The intent is for the Friends to work with private parties to salvage and sell what can be sold and then take the rest and scrap it. Any proceeds will go back into the Vista project.
The U. S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services will be conducting a feral swine removal project on the Refuge (and all over Florida). They apparently received significant Congressional appropriations to do so with the intent to both remove this invasive species and collect blood samples to check for diseases such as African Swine Fever. This will be an ongoing project using traps, guns, and aerial shooting. Specifics have not been finalized.
