The Fort Caroline Gopher Tortoise Reserve went into operation on August 17, 2001.  This is a 1000 square foot tortoise pen built in the courtyard of Fort Caroline Middle School in Arlington.  I recently acquired a permit for 6 gopher tortoises, Gopherus polyphemus, and have 6 adults in the pen.  These tortoises are captive hatched in 1987, 1989, and 1993.  They are all siblings.
