WE, the undersigned citizens, hereby petition our Governor, U.S. Senators, and Congress persons to take action to preserve Pettys Island and its endangered American Bald Eagles and other threatened and endangered species. We urge them to call on the New Jersey Natural Lands Trust and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to accept Citgo Corporations offer to clean up Pettys Island and to grant a conservation easement as a free gift to the public so that the island will become permanent open space and stay home to the many animals/birds and plants that live there. We say NO to building on the island, as it would upset the natural environment found on Pettys Island by encroaching on the habitat of the wild.
