Yeah, FWC officials don't know what they are doing. Where I work (on private conservation land), we work along with FWC people and they are bumbling around with no idea of what is what - makes me agitated to know that THESE people are in charge of our laws, not real biologists (and if they are heaven help us). If they are SO against releasing CB individuals that are CB for the SOLE purpose of saving wild populations, why in the world do we have the Orianne project trying to restore Indigo populations? While they are Indigos and so darn cool, what makes them so much more special than a species that very well may soon be on the list of endangered species? I know of a few people who catch, breed, and release populations of a plethora of snake species where they captured the parents. The one thing that would have to happen is as you said, to release ones in an area, they would have to have the genes from that area. From what you said though someone has to start and SOON in the S. Fla. populations in order to actually find any adults to breed.
