Audubon North Carolina Executive Director, Chris Canfield
Thursday, March 29, 2007
7:00 p.m. at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences
Free & open to the public
Audubon NC Director to discuss OLF at Museum, March 29
RALEIGH - For the past four years, Audubon North Carolina Executive
Director Chris Canfield has led efforts to protect the Pocosin Lakes
National Wildlife Refuge from Navy
plans to build an adjacent jet landing field. Canfield, a former Air
Force officer in the Pentagon, will outline the issues surrounding the
controversial OLF (Outlying Landing Field) when he presents "Refuge at
Risk: The Navy and Pocosin Lakes" at the North Carolina Museum of
Natural Sciences on Thursday, March 29 at 7 p.m. The presentation is
free and open to the public.
The Pocosin Lakes refuge in eastern North Carolina is winter home to
more than 100,000 swans, geese and other large waterfowl. Construction
of a nearby landing strip is opposed by landowners, environmentalists
and wildlife advocates, as well as Gov. Easley, who has called on
Congress to block $10 million in federal funding for that site. Among
the biggest concerns cited by opponents is the risk of birds colliding
with jets - a problem that can cause jets to crash. To reduce the risk,
the Navy has proposed that farmers plant less enticing food crops near
the airstrip in the hope that this will discourage the birds from
flocking near the runway. Beyond that, the Navy has proposed using dogs
and fireworks to scare off birds, and potentially resorting to poison
