Subject: Jan 3,2023 NEW BUSINESS: B. Ordinance No. 2023-01 Restricting Drone Usage near Oyster Catcher Nests and Other Nesting sites along water way
Dear Mayor and Commissioners,
The Sierra Club supports regulations that restrict drone usage near Oyster Catcher and other Nesting Sites. Drones cause nesting birds to chase them leaving the chicks defenseless. Drones provide no benefits and are simply toys. They should be restricted near nests and signage should clearly state that they are prohibited. There should be a strong fine for those who ignore the regulations.
