Now more than ever, Cumberland Island National Seashore needs a superintendent committed to protecting wilderness.
Dear National Park Service Regional Director Austin,
Now more than ever, Cumberland Island National Seashore needs a superintendent committed to protecting wilderness. Safeguarding the island’s natural resources should be the top priority of the next superintendent. Island residents are attempting to extend retained rights indefinitely, threatening the long-term future of the national seashore. Sea turtles and alligators on the island face more threats from feral animals, poaching, and changing habitat. Sea turtles and marine mammals must contend with new dangers offshore. Only a strong superintendent dedicated to wilderness and natural resources can continue to preserve the wild character of Cumberland Island, which ranks as the top reason visitors come to the island in every visitor survey. Please act in the interest of the public and the long-term health of the island by selecting a superintendent committed to wilderness and natural resource protection on Cumberland.
