Save The Briger Forest

This petition is a request that Palm Beach County revisit turning the Briger Tract (Briger Forest) into a preserve and deny the Scripps Phase II/Briger Project.  With this action the Briger Forest can maintain it's equestrian use, be open to hikers, the general public and university students for environmental research purposes and maintain its value as a critical habitat in Palm Beach County.

The Briger Forest is 682 Acres of predominantly Pine Flatwoods and wetlands. Pine Flatwoods are a type of habitat that is targeted by developers due to how easily it can be cleared and built on.  The Briger Forest is home and suitable habitat to over 13 state and federally listed plant and animal species. It is the largest tract of undeveloped and uprotected land in the Eastern Corridor of I-95 in South Florida. The Briger Forest provides pollution buffers to the communities surrounding it, provides a carbon sequestration pocket, and is with in a Core Foraging Area of a Wood Stork rookery.

We demand that Briger does not get paved over and turned into needless strip malls, unneccessary housing and research labs where animals ranging from flies to primates will be tested on and tortured. We want to encourage and maintain biodiveristy over biotechnology in South Florida. Deny Scripps phase II & save the Briger Forest!
