The entire Hogan Island Quarry site is comprised of lands identified as essential to the survival of the Florida panther, with about half the site designated as “primary zone” habitat for the panther, making it a top priority for protection. The mining operation would destroy the habitat value of these lands forever and impair the use of the adjacent wildlife corridor. It would also add more than 1,000 vehicle trips a day onto rural roads that are already deadly for panthers and other wildlife.

It is "critical" this mining be stopped!

These mining companies give no regard to the quality of our lives which include having wildlife in the picture. They would have every square inch of our land destroyed if allowed, polluting our waters, the air, and all life at their mercy.....which mercy is never given it seems.
