Audubon NC Director to discuss OLF at Museum, March 29

RALEIGH - For the past four years, Audubon North Carolina Executive Director Chris Canfield has led efforts to protect the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge from Navy plans to build an adjacent jet landing field. Canfield, a former Air Force officer in the Pentagon, will outline the issues surrounding the controversial OLF (Outlying Landing Field) when he presents "Refuge at Risk: The Navy and Pocosin Lakes" at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences on Thursday, March 29 at 7 p.m. The presentation is free and open to the public.

The Pocosin Lakes refuge in eastern North Carolina is winter home to more than 100,000 swans, geese and other large waterfowl. Construction of a nearby landing strip is opposed by landowners, environmentalists and wildlife advocates, as well as Gov. Easley, who has called on Congress to block $10 million in federal funding for that site. Among the biggest concerns cited by opponents is the risk of birds colliding with jets - a problem that can cause jets to crash. To reduce the risk, the Navy has proposed that farmers plant less enticing food crops near the airstrip in the hope that this will discourage the birds from flocking near the runway. Beyond that, the Navy has proposed using dogs and fireworks to scare off birds, and potentially resorting to poison and firearms.
