take action to preserve hatteras

Please help with an urgent conservation issue that could have an impact on all national parks—the future management of off-road vehicles within Cape Hatteras National Seashore on North Carolina's Outer Banks. The park's beaches are crucial nesting areas for rare birds and sea turtles. Other park visitors also enjoy areas without ORVs for recreational activities and safe family recreation.

The public has one chance to comment on this plan (called a Draft Environmental Impact Statement or DEIS) before midnight (Mountain Daylight Time) May 11, 2010 to make sure that the Park Service protects the rare birds and sea turtles for which Cape Hatteras is famous and provides equal access for all visitors.

Please make your voice heard by submitting comments to the National Park Service.
