Why do I get fined for flying over a wildlife preserve?

Flight over wildlife preserves is not prohibited by FAA. There is, however, AIM guidance to maintain at least an altitude of 2,000 feet agl when overflying. Certain federal or state agencies having jurisdiction over these areas may impose a fine for overflights that violate the minimum altitude limit.
