On its website FPL states that, “About nine-tenths of the Turkey Point property remains in its natural state of mangroves and fresh water wetlands. There are more than 60 known species of birds and animals that inhabit the property. Of these, 17 are endangered. The endangered American crocodile enjoys a favorable habitat in the plant cooling canal system. Turkey Point was recognized with the top industry award for land management and environmental stewardship.”

Up next, the NRC will create a draft environmental impact statement (EIS) and then hold public hearings about their preliminary findings in South Florida. There is no timetable for when that would happen.
