E-M:/ Don't forget about the Piping plover!

Enviro-Mich message from "Liz Godfrey" <lizgodfrey@prodigy.net>

Michigan Conservationists!

In all the hubub surrounding Bush's various nominations and the
Inauguration, please do not forget about the plight of the piping plover in
Leelanu County.  The US Fish and Wildlife Service extended the comment
period on the Magic Carpet Woods Incidental Take/Habitat Conservation Plan
until January 22nd.  You may submit comments until that time.

This short, stocky shorebird that was once abundant throughout the Great
Lakes is holding on "for dear life" and its remnant are reallu "making a go
of it" in Northern MI.  Let's increase its chances of recovery by making
sure that it gets all the protection it can.  Ask the FWS to hold Public
Hearings to determine what the local community as well as the greater MI
community thinks about the fate of the Piping plover.
