|Want to help protect our local Hygiene Bald Eagles? Please read this blog from Dana Bove about our Hygiene Bald Eagle nest and please answer the call to action, send the email (cc parties listed below), or use the template below. Not taking a stand, is a stand. The time is Always NOW. Caring is Sharing–etc etc Going under the radar is the main strategy utilized by industry to suppress community’s interests and rights, knowledge is power, please use yours to protect our nesting eagles and two fledglings. All bald eagle nests in the Front Range depend on a prairie dog colonies for their survival. Five out of Nine monitored Bald Eagle nests in the Front Range have failed thus far in 2017. We can ensure that the Hygiene Bald eagles are protected with your timely help.
“The field here where these two learn to be eagles is planned to be gravel mined. This is happening in Boulder County, folks, at one of the most popular Bald Eagle nests in the Front Range. We can make a difference at a local level. Please! just stop for a moment, and look at the map and the photos. The nest tree is right in, or at best, next to the planned mine. These photos [taken last week] of both adult female and fledgling. The photos of the adult and fledgling in the field–feeding on one of the prairie dogs–are right in the path of the proposed quarry!” Dana Bove
U.S. Fish and Wildlife (USFW) almost routinely allows disturbances of these nests through their legal permitting system. They will likely do this again, and they prefer to do this without any public notice or participation. They are used to and count on the public remaining in the dark. With your voices heard, these wonderful birds might remain protected.
Write an email and cc it to all these people. Please be polite. Mix up the words a bit if you wish to personalize, and please email it along:
To whom it concerns regarding Boulder County Land Use Docket Docket SU 96-18 (Hygiene Bald Eagle nest)
I respectfully request that you deny Martin-Marietta’s plans for gravel mining within sight distance of the Hygiene Road Bald Eagle nest in Boulder County. I ask US Fish and Wildlife to deny any current or future “incidental take” or “take” permit application(s) pertaining to the Hygiene eagle nest. Nesting Bald Eagles are still Federally protected. I am deeply concerned about the well-being of this nest, and both the parent eagles and young that depend on undisturbed foraging and the prairie dog colony in the fields where mining is proposed to occur.
Please File this letter in Docket SU 96-18
