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.
