Honourable David Ramsay,
John Immerseel, Zone Manager,
Dear Mr. Ramsay,
RE: EBR Registry Number: PB04E6007
I am writing to ask you to stop the slaughter of 6,000 cormorants on High Bluff Island in Presqu’ile Provincial Park, scheduled to begin after April 16, 2004.
The slaughter contravenes the very notion of a sanctuary for nesting birds. It undermines the ecological integrity of the park, and it is appallingly destructive to the cormorants. There is no scientific or ecological justification for such a drastic measure.
The Ministry should take a “hands off” approach to wildlife management in Presqu’ile Provincial Park, allowing cormorants and other species to impact the environment as occurs in any dynamic, healthy ecosystem.
Therefore I am asking you to take the following actions:
Thank you for your consideration in this matter. I urge you to act quickly to stop the slaughter of 6,000 cormorants on High Bluff Island in Presqu’ile Provincial Park.
