A shining example

Sam Shine’s 6,200-acre donation to a Florida wildlife refuge is just the latest in a life dedicated to conservation

Atlanta, Georgia — Sam Shine, for years, quietly bought up North Florida property and set about conserving it. A successful Midwestern manufacturer, Shine made a number of under-the-radar land deals that received little notice outside the Panhandle conservation community. Until now. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service just received 6,200 acres of ecologically critical pine lands and headwaters adjoining the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. Shine is donating the land to the Service — a gift — not merely selling of a chunk at a good price or establishing a conservation easement.

Suches, Georgia — In the early hours of June 4, the main water line to the Chattahoochee Forest National Fish Hatchery was cut off, killing about 52,000 trout worth $62,000. The Fannin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating. The hatchery’s friends group is offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the fish-kill perpetrators. “It’s beyond me why somebody would do this,” said Kelly Taylor, project leader at Chattahoochee.
