Campaign to Stop LA Wetland’s Bulldozing Scam Gains Steam
More Angelinos are joining the battle to stop a destructive and highly unpopular plan to bulldoze LA’s Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve. LA’s last coastal wetlands near Marina del Rey is home to upwards of 2,000 species, including threatened and endangered species. Some estimate there are up to a million beings, large and small, who would have no place to go if the one square mile of wild land is bulldozed…. Foxes, owls, egrets, cormorants, pelicans, snakes, herons, butterflies, to name a few of the species. In May, a judge brought the bulldozing plans to “a screeching halt” (is how the LA Times described the ruling) saying California’s Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Environmental Impact Report was flawed and failed to account for flood risks! But the CDFW continues to try and move forward even though about 40 people testified against it at a recent hearing with virtually zero testimony in support of the ecologically unsound plan.
