Say no do dune walkover

February 6, 2020
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

To the editor:

We have been asked to allow beach walkovers near one of our most unique natural areas -- the Little Estero Island Critical Wildlife Area. (LEICWA)

Beach walkovers, by increasing human activity, decrease the appeal of an area tor wildlife. Walkovers harm birds by allowing humans to come too close. They give predators easy access to nests. Walkovers scare off shorebirds and turtles and add to their peril.

Fort Myers Beach is a vibrant business district and a living natural area on one shared barrier island.

The extraordinary natural beauty and the convenience of nearby restaurants combine to make Fort Myers Beach a wonderful place. We brag about our busy Times Square and treasure our Florida flora and fauna.

To change the commercial north or the natural south of Fort Myers Beach would lessen Fort Myers Beach.

Vote no on beach walkovers. Keep Fort Myers Beach a haven for shorebirds and turtles on the south.
