University of California to destroy vernal pools and species
SEND A INTERNET FAX TO SAVE WETLANDS AND ENDANGERED
SPECIES...UNIVERSITIES ARE FOR EDUCATION, NOT EXTINCTION
The University of California plans to build an enormous new campus,
complete with a supporting community, new highways, and massive
sprawl, in the largest remaining vernal pool complex in California. The
site, located outside the city of Merced, was selected in a
poorly conducted process which inexplicably rejected less
environmentally sensitive areas. The proposed site is home to at least
seven endangered species including the Conservancy Fairy Shrimp
(Branchinecta conservatio) and Vernal Pool Tadpole Shrimp (Lepidurus
The Center for Biological Diversity is working with a coalition
to convince the university to relocate its proposed campus to a less
environmentally destructive location.
