NASA is looking to build a new 200 acer Commercial facility in these wetlands. May not seem to matter to most in an area this large, but I bet the wildlife inhabitants of Merritt Island don't agree.

Do we really feel NASA needs to go in & destroy vital Wetland areas, habitat that's a National Wildlife Refuge, when they don't even want to say how many more jobs it will produce or how many more launches. Their launch pads are empty most of the year as it is. How many empty cement pads are needed?

NASA had a Notice on the web, but it's been removed for some reason. It's like they don't want us to know. They arranged two town meetings, but when questions were asked about how many new launches they're planning, how many new jobs will be created. All they answered was "We don't know."

I consider the wetlands on this planet very important for the welfare of the planet. What few we have left need protection. The wildlife need protection. For the welfare of the planet we have to take action to protect what is left.

I've started a humble petition which I plan to send to NASA. It simply states that the signers oppose the development of the area. 261 signatures are not enough to make NASA think twice about going in and just building on the site. I need more signatures. I contacted all my friends here on care2.com & I've gotten some signatures - - but alas, not enough.

So please consider signing my petition & tell NASA why you care about the wetlands & wildlife in general.

Maybe we can stop their attack on Nature.

Thanks for considering.... a link to my petition can be found here

Thank you for considering....
