READ: In the Fall of 2007, National Audubon Society, The Defenders of Wildlife and the Southern Environmental Law Center filed suit in Federal District Court against the United States of America to limit or ban access to many of the primary areas of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, including Oregon Inlet, Cape Point, most of Ocracoke and others. On March 13, 2008 the Dept of Justice declined to contest the lawsuit which will be heard April 11, 2008 in Raleigh NC. This means that the beach access will be effectively closed at that time. This will also have a devastating effect on our culture, businesses, tourism, property values and the economy as a whole in an area with an existing healthy natural environment.
