Support Virginia’s Groundbreaking Steps to Protect Migratory Birds!

abcbirds.org

I am writing to express my support for the proposed regulation on incidental take of migratory birds, 4VAC15-30-70. Thank you for leading the Commonwealth toward a commonsense plan to protect migratory birds.

This much-needed regulation will be a win-win for everyone. In addition to the many benefits of bird conservation, this will provide regulatory clarity for industry.

I have been dismayed at the last three years of regulatory rollbacks at the federal level. This has left our already-diminished birds at even greater risk. I am encouraged to see the Commonwealth step in to fill this regulatory void.

I offer one very important suggestion: That the overarching goal be clarified to achieve no net loss of migratory birds for regulated activities. Please require industry to provide compensation for its impact to birds, no matter the permit level. By requiring compensation for all permits, we can offset the continued loss of our declining bird populations.

Again, thank you for taking this important step to protect the birds of Virginia and beyond.

    • Wow okay… can you give me example GP? Is this post one of them or is it ones that I post from Twitter!? Any help you can give me would be appreciated, so I can work things out with WordPress.

      I’m assuming it’s the one somebody carved Trump’s name on the Manatee… I swear some people should have the type of crime example “animal cruelty” tattooed on their forehead so we can spot them!!
