Seawalls in Florida blocking sea turtle nesting opposed
MetadataShow full item record
Four conservation groups notified the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) that they intend to sue over its permitting of seawalls that block sea turtles from nesting on Florida beaches. The agency has already been under fire from the US Fish and Wildlife Service over its permitting because all sea turtles are legally protected species. The notice, filed by the Center for Biological Diversity, the Sierra Club the Florida Wildlife Foundation and Surfrider Foundation, contends the DEP is violating federal law by handling out seawall permits in nesting territory with no regard for the turtles. Earthjustice is representing the groups.
