Protect Sea Turtles and Shore Birds

i May 5th 2 Comments by

The National Park Service (NPS) is taking public comments on proposed changes on wildlife buffers at Cape Hatteras National Seashore. We need your help to urge the NPS not to make sweeping changes to this successful management plan that has helped triple sea turtle nests and doubled some numbers of bird species. Unfortunately, comments can only be submitted via the NPS’s website and must be submitted by May 14. See our “Advocacy” page for talking points that you can use to craft your own comments (or copy/paste.) SUBMIT YOUR COMMENTS HERE: http://bit.ly/1zjVuB2

    I oppose the proposed changes on wildlife buffer at Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
    The current plan has help triple sea turtle nests and double the numbers of some bird species.
    While I understand visitors to the area would like the use of the beach area to its full stretch, it is
    important to preserve other inhabitants. North Carolina has an extensive coast available to humans.
    Please, listen to those who cannot defend their territory by themselves.
