SIGN THIS PETITION : Keep Protections in Place for Cape Hatteras Wildlife

Target:
U.S. Congress
Sponsored by: Care2.com

Currently, habitat for loggerhead turtles, piping plovers and other imperiled wildlife of Cape Hatteras National Seashore is being protected from beach driving
under a management plan that came out of collaboration and consensus among local residents, county governments, the National Park Service, environmental groups, scientists, and local sporting groups who all share the goal of protecting Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  And it's working. Since some of the most sensitive areas were closed to vehicles, birds like the piping plover and the American oystercatcher have been bouncing back.  But recently, federal legislation was introduced in Congress that would override this plan and turn back the clock on Hatteras -- and the turtles, shorebirds and other wildlife that depend on these beaches to survive. Please take a moment to let your lawmakers know that you oppose this legislation that would put Cape Hatteras wildlife and this beloved seashore at long-term risk.

      You all do know that these petition/internet things are effective.....Well, I guess you do...look who won the Presidency!  As more evidence, MOVE ON did a petition drive to get questions for the BANK CEO's, those are what the Representatives used to grill them at the last hearing. (see the video of Rachel Maddow discussing that on her show.)  Then having hundreds of thousands of citizen petitions, in hand, was the leverage Sen Dodd used to get Wall Street bonuses taken away inserted in an amendment to the Stimulus Bill, just on the last conference day last week.  It' not just CEO's that must forego (even pay back) bonuses, all managerial levels cannot have bonuses, until the banks make profits...as it should be. .......So,  keep signing all the real petitions you approve of. (By real I mean the ones on valid nonprofit sites... not on 'Petition' sites such as CARE2 which are only up to collect email addresses.) ... if you don't want mail back from the nonprofit sites, just be sure to uncheck their email  boxes. That works fine, usually.

      I will sign the pledge but never a CARE2 petition...That is a phishing scam to link you and your email and 'cares' to their ads buyers.
