Ok. I have opened it up for the comments. Not sure of what the Wood pecker issue is.
Sea Turtle.... You can't.. they are protected under CITES Appendix 1 and 2. If you were to somehow get hold of one, you will face a very hefty fine and a prison sentence.
Their website... Welcome to CITES
Sea turtles are occasionally seen in public aquariums under exceptional circumstances. They have been rescued from a turtle farm or rehabilitated after being washed up on a beach. I am sure that they have special rules which they have to follow.

What's the point of this thread? What issue are you trying to discuss, dispute? Why not list other federally protected coastal animals like porpoises, blue heron, bald eagle...........

Default Purpose

was to assist my fellow posters to have a place to discuss these matters. Not on the Hwy 12. As recommended by the mod. So where does the saving of those you mentioned and more stand in you eyes. What should we do about development in areas that effects these creatures?

Point blank questions I like and will reply in kind.

Loaded question. What area doesn't "effect" these creatures? If you look at the little one liner beneath my name it says I "Love the Lord and the Land and Sea He Made". Notice development isn't listed.
Development for development sake is very bad and it happened too much during the boom times. I saw homes and subdivisions built in areas that shouldn't have been allowed. I still don't know how legally some of these places were allowed to build.
I don't have the energy or inclination to go into detail of all of the illegal or simply plain wrong activity that went on during the real estate boomtimes. But I'll leave you with this. Eastern/coastal NC is very special. I love the inner and outer banks and have family and my dearest friends peppered all over it. It should always be treated for what it is-A slice of God's heaven here on earth.

By the way-I do find it interesting that one of the most common threads posted here at CD are complaints from folks about nothing to do in eastern NC. Seems that pristine water, land, beaches, sounds and oceans isn't enough. Evidently boredom sets in if there aren't enough boardwalks, night clubs and amusement parks.

Default Effect is a loaded term

I could and should only hope that one with any type a brain would understand. Which I think you do. It was to see what you think. Not just it is wrong. Your ideas. Also, I understand your love for the coast. I have that same affection. Although I do not live there. I look at the whole nature thing as a gift that we are destroying. Along with ourselves. The area you live on is really not unlike another. Thing is what you do with it.
