UFWDA, in partnership with BlueRibbon Coalition, is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and convication of the person(s) responsible for the vandalism of symbolic fencing resource protection signs located approximately 1 mile east of Ramp 49 in the South Beach area of  Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  The vandalism took place on or around May 10, 2008.

According to the National Park Service investigation, two sets of footprints were found along the edge of the fence line that extended from the dunes to the waters edge.  No footprints or tire tracks were observed entering the closed area which was established to protect a least tern colony; no birds appeared to have been disturbed during the act of vandalism.

A recent court approved Consent Degree requires the National Park Service to automatically expand the closure area by 50 meters where a confirmed deliberate act disturbs or harasses wildlife or vandalizes fencing, nests, or plants.  The vandal(s) action leading to the subsequent enclosure enlargement have not caused harm to the birds but have caused additional harm to the businesses and ORV community recreating and fishing at Cape Hatteras!
