Default Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreational Area is Threatened by Closure.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreational Area is Threatened by Closure.

WHAT: Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreational Area is threatened by closure of large amounts of beaches to ORV and pedestrian use.

WHEN: A judge in federal district court will hear a motion for preliminary injunction on Friday, April, 4, 2008, in Raleigh, North Carolina. The injunction requests a ban on ORV use in certain beaches within the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreational Area.

We need your calls today and everyday this week.

WHAT TO DO: Regardless of where you live, call your U.S. Congressional delegation urging them to protect the Outer Banks community. Please call both your Representative and your Senators. Find who represents you in Congress by clicking here http://www.visi.com/juan/congress/ .

Ask them to pass legislation as soon as possible to clarify the Park Service’s previously expressed intent to maintain public access, particularly vehicle access, to Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreational
Area.

Use the talking points listed below in “THE TRUTH” section.

Focus equally on Republicans and Democrats. Democrats particularly champion ESA protection. The organizations requesting the closure are undermining the ESA.

THE ISSUE: Three organizations have brought suit against the National Park Service asking the court to enter a preliminary injunction stopping all ORV driving in areas identified as critical for nesting waterbirds and shorebirds at Bodie Island Spit (Oregon Inlet), Cape Point, South Beach, Hatteras Spit, North Ocracoke, and South Ocracoke on Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreational Area.

ENVIRONMENTALIST CLAIMS: The three organizations make the following claims to the court to support their motion for the injunction of ORV use.
• The economic injury to ORV users and the local economy will be minimal
• The injury to the species will be “irreparable” and cause “extirpation” of endangered, threatened, and rare species
• The injunction would cause only a limited reduction in the area of beach open to ORV driving

That is what is considered the Outer Banks correct?

Yes, it is considered the outer banks. We vacation on Ocracoke Island every year. They already close areas for these birds and some areas are closed certain parts of the year for the sea turtles.
