Coming Soon -- Sample Letter To Defend the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve, as a Predominantly Freshwater Seasonal Wetland and Oppose the Certification of the Current Final Environmental Impact Report to Dig Out and Create a Full Tidal Saltwater Wetland:
Put your heart felt comments first (See Background information below for ideas. Form letters are not counted unless the letter is personalized)
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), the State’s lead agency authorized with the protection and preservation of endangered ecosystems in the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve (BWER), has now certified its Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR), pursuing its intention to convert the BWER from a predominantly seasonal freshwater wetlands into an open, full tidal saltwater bay.
I oppose this FEIR. I agree with the Environmental Organizations who oppose the FEIR certification who are filing lawsuits that challenge the CDFW plan. These lawsuits are CEQA litigation. . . The CDFW FEIR threatens the integrity and survival of the endangered ecosystems of the BWER and we believe are in violation of numerous state and federal laws in addition to having numerous California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) violations.
