- STOP CAPTIVE DOLPHIN COMMENTS Extension of comment period for File No. 22686 (Chicago Zoological Society)IN ST THOMAS USVI
  • By Jane Higgins <jhigginswear at gmail.com>
  • Date: Tue, 16 Apr 2019 14:47:38 -0400
PLEASE ASK FOR THE PERMIT TO IMPORT CAPTIVE DOLPHINS INTO ST THOMAS 
BE DENIED
 
The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is responding to your request for an extension of the public comment period and public hearing on an application submitted by the Chicago Zoological Society (CZS) for the import three bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) for public display.  

We have decided to extend the public comment period for an additional 30 days to provide the public an opportunity to review additional information provided by CZS.  However, we determined that a public hearing is not warranted because documentation related to this MMPA permit application can be provided in writing.  In order to allow for a full 30 days for additional public comment, we will accept comment through May 19, 2019, even though the FR notice indicates that the comment period ends on May 16, 2019.  

NMFS has gone back to CZS and has requested additional information regarding the health status of the dolphins and the water quality at Coral World.  In addition, CZS has updated their transport plans regarding the timing and destination of the dolphins to be imported.  The amended application is posted online at: https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/action/permit-application-import-3-bottlenose-dolphins-file-no-22686-chicago-zoological-society.



- Still Chillin

We have had the coldest winter into spring that we can remember
in our 25 years here. With  morning temps under 70 degrees 
up til this week. The sea and pool remain very cool and the sweaters
and comforters are still in use here on the NW side of St Thomas.A strong
brief downpour woke us at day break. The veggies and herbs are loving
this chillin ting. The second planting of tomatoes has potential. So lucky.
