Petition Against The Use of Personal Water Craft at the Gateway National Recreation Area

We, the undersigned, oppose the use of Personal Water Craft (aka "jetskis," or "thrillcraft") in the Gateway National Recreation Area (NRA) as a gross violation of the National Environmental Policy Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the Coastal Zone Management Act; as destructive of numerous species "of concern," threatened or endangered; as causing environmental degradation; as highly polluting in both fuel discharge and noise levels; as dangerous; and as ruining quality visitor experience. Allowing PWC use within the NRA will remove full protection of the park resources. We support any legal action to oppose the use of PWC in the Gateway NRA.
