Endangered water birds reproduce at Turtle Bay Resort!Headline
May 5, 2013 — Hawaiian Moorhen, 500 remaining on the planet. This family is in a water hazard of the Fazio Golf Course at Turtle Bay Resort. It's unclear what the Resort's proposed expansion intends to do with these water hazards. US Fish and Wildlife Service have been informed. Good they are reproducing, sad that there are usually 3 or more hatchlings. Lots of uncontrolled dangers at TBR; mongoose, cats, dogs, rats, bullfrogs, speeding golf carts and maintenance workers that have NO idea that these birds (and 3 more species of water birds on the property) are listed under the Endangered Species Act. Neighbor saw a mongoose attacking these moorhens this morning. The Resort has no predator control program to protect the birds, plants seals and turtles here - There is no proposal for developing one in its draft Environmental Impact Statement. https://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=331154743653702&set=a.331134196989090.1073741833.244613202307
