TAKE ACTION - SIGN THIS ONLINE PETITION:

Save Whitefish Point

Target: Secretary of Interior

Sponsored by:Whitefish Point Preservation Society

The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society is destroying the history of the Whitefish Point Light Station
and robbing precious habitat from a world class migration flyway. The Whitefish Point Light Station is on the National Historic Register and sits next to the Whitefish Point National Wildlife Refuge. For the first time in more than two decades, endangered piping plovers successfully fledged chicks at Whitefish Point in the years 2009 and 2010.
 
The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society holds the Whitefish Point Light Station in trust for the people
of the United States. This society violated the people's trust many times over many years, including extreme over-development and commercialization of the site, unreported mercury spills, loss of rare plant species, loss
of habitat on a major migration flyway, loss of historical integrity, buildings flooding, septic overflows, invasive species,  traffic hazards, and attempts to ban access of watchdogs.

Please tell the Secretary of Interior to save the Whitefish Point Light Station from further destruction. Ask the Secretary of Interior to revoke the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society's federal land patent for the Whitefish Point Light Station and return it to the people of the United
States.



Please ask your friends to sign the petitions too.

You can also help protect Whitefish Point by asking your Senators and Michigan’s Senator Levin and Stabenow to support the Secretary of Interior's action to revoke the GLSHS federal land patent.
