  • FWF LAWSUIT LAUNCHED TO PROTECT ENDANGERED SEA TURTLES FROM SINGER ISLAND SEAWALLS
    that destroy Florida s beautiful beaches harm sea turtles and do nothing to protect Florida from rising seas said Jaclyn Lopez Florida director at the Center for Biological Diversity Governor Scott and our state regulators need to get their heads out of the sand and protect our precious beaches and adopt real proactive measures to give Florida a fighting chance to survive climate change Beaches are dynamic in nature and when a seawall is constructed along a shoreline undergoing long term net erosion such as Singer Island the shoreline migrates landward toward the structure said Todd Remmel coastal preservation liaison with the Palm Beach County chapter of the Surfrider Foundation The result is an increase in erosion a loss of beach and a lack of public access Beaches are unique coastal environments with ecological recreational and economic value As human activities and development in coastal areas continue to increase the need for preservation of beaches becomes ever more apparent All three sea turtle species are protected under the Endangered Species Act from activities that hurt them including alteration of habitat For the turtles to nest successfully beaches must be relatively unimpeded from the mean high water line to the toe of the second dune have sand suitable for nest construction be sufficiently dark and support natural coastal processes In Florida many beaches have been degraded due to encroaching development Seawalls must be as far landward as practicable and require replenishment of high quality sand lost to erosion in order to be protective of sea turtles The Florida Department of Environmental Protection s permitting of beach wall projects is harming nesting sea turtles in violation of federal law Beaches naturally migrate but when waves hit a walled beach the wave energy moves sand away from the shore and ultimately narrows the width of the beach Seawalls can also block access to suitable nesting habitat The walls reduce nesting habitat displace sea turtles to poor nesting habitat increase the energy needed to nest decrease nesting activity decrease nesting habitat quality and can entrap nesting turtles Like so many of us sea turtles love Singer Island It has one of the highest nesting densities of turtles in North America said Florida Wildlife Federation President Manley Fuller DEP needs to require measures that will protect turtles and decrease erosion This means pushing seawalls farther back and maintaining the dune systems in front of them We Floridians love our sea turtles and we need to make changes in the way we build that will protect them said Drew Martin of the Sierra Club By minimizing the most destructive type of seawalls and increasing dune restoration with native plants we will see better results for people and turtles The Endangered Species Act protects sea turtles and their nests from being harmed or injured said Earthjustice attorney Alisa Coe DEP is allowing these walls without adequate protections with the knowledge that they harm turtles Protecting our beaches from climate change doesn t mean just protecting our property
