The US Fish & Wildlife has reopened their public comment period on critical habitat for endangered species of birds which could result in more beach closures, especially at Oregon Inlet, Cape Point and Ocracoke Island. The US Fish & Wildlife feel there would be little impact on the local economy if more beaches, mostly the points of the islands, are closed to pedestrian and vehicle use year round. People are asked to email their comments to: before July 30, 2007. More information can be found at the top of our message board. Don't forget your license
