Why is Ormond So Important?
Benefits of Wetlands to Birds & Humans
Earth Alert Favors an Ecological Reserve. Why?
Why Ormond Isn't Just a Local Issue
Ormond Beach is on the Pacific Flyway, which stretches from Patagonia in South America to Alaska, and because that flyway is so fragmented, any place that still provides a place for migrating birds to rest and forage is that much more important, especially with sea level rise.
The Endangered Species Act is both federal and state legislation. If the endangered species at Ormond are not being adequately protected, it is therefore a violation of federal and state laws.

The clear evidence that climate change is happening worldwide indicates that work to significantly slow climate change must take place at the highest levels of government.
