Imagine a high speed ferry the size of a football field arriving at your island seven days a week bringing up to 282 vehicles,866 people plus live stock and pets.
The superferry is to be launched in june 2007without enviromental and cultrual impact studies, despite requests from the county council of all four islands involved. How could this affect the future generations of the uniquely beautiful islands of Hawaii?
Death and injury to legally endangered humpback whales, dolphins and all other marine life? The loss of even one monk seal or leatherback turtle would be very serious for these highly endangered populations.
congestion of are beaches, surf spots, roads and parking?
A conduit of drugs and invasive species, virtually impossible to detect during the planned one hour unloading and reloading? A mongoose population would spread rapidly, destroying kauai's population of albatross, Nene and all other seabirds.
Increased movement of stolen cars, surfboards and household contents of all island?
Rising numeber of homless from other islands?
Over harvesting of scarce resources such as opihi and maile also over fishing?
Superferry construction is well advanced, but we the people have not been consulted about the impact on our way of life. Its time to express our views. Thank u lets preserve Hawaii.....
