CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- City leaders are creating a program to help protect our wildlife.

The city council has approved $100,000 to pay for utilities fees for plots of land non-profit wildlife conservation groups use.

Normally, animals like burrowing owls, gopher tortoises, and bald eagles live on these plots.

This will help those organizations protect those animals by taking care of the necessary fees for the land.
