Richardson Bay and Audubon

Audubon San Francisco faces another catastrophe of Nature, a Sewage spill in Richardson Bay.

http://cbs5.com/environment/Richardson.Bay.history.2.643995.html

Still recovering from November 7th  when a cargo tanker collided with California’s Bay Bridge and released approximately 58,000 gallons of hazardous bunker fuel into the waters of the bay.

In a press release on February 2nd by the Emergency Operations Center in Marin County, an “accidental release” of 2.7 millions gallons of treated sewage and storm water was released in the bay.

Audubon California on the Effects from the Oil Spill

http://www.audubon-ca.org/newsroom/071113_oiled_birds.html

“This is really the worst time and the worst place for this accident to happen, given that millions of birds are stopping here for their winter migration and finding this oily water,” said Langham.

This series of events will upset the migratory bird/eelgrass eco-system for years to come.

Baby Super Tuesday Winner, the Oceans again!!

The federal government is now proposing to declare an extensive protected area for the two species from the coasts of Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties through the Florida Keys to the U.S. islands of the Caribbean.

Designation of the 4,931-square-mile area could affect plans for beach-widening, port expansions, sewage discharges, ship anchoring and other coastal activities. Although it is unlikely to halt them, it would add a layer of scrutiny that could force changes or relocations to avoid harming the corals, said Sarah Heberling, natural resource specialist for the National Marine Fisheries Service

Critical Habitat designation Proposed to protect threatened Florida Corals
Under the Endangered Species Act the federal government has proposed designating almost 5,000 square miles of reef area off the coasts of Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands as critical habitat for the protection of threatened Staghorn and Elkhorn corals. The area includes all coastal waters in Palm Beach County from the beach out to 90 feet deep.
Critical habitat is one of the most important safety nets for wildlife listed under the Endangered Species Act, said Miyoko Sakashita, attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity.

A public hearing will be held on the proposal Tuesday, March 4, 7-9 p.m. at the International Game Fish Association, 300 Gulf Stream Way, Dania Beach.

EarthRehab’s William will attend “said” meeting and keep this thread posted of the outfalls.
