Tuesday, June 20, 2006 | Re: Miramar’s Ecological Price Tag. When Del Mar Mesa, west of Miramar, was allowed to be developed, over half of the land was set aside for vernal pools, fairy shrimp, gnatcatchers etc.
Our critters and plants will be shocked to know development 15 miles to the east will wipe them off the face of the planet. We have some of the most diverse flora and fauna in the world around our home. Mr. David Hogan is welcome to stop by and look. Also the 30,000 pairs of gnatcatchers in Mexico, who according to UCSD are genetically identical to their northern kin, will be gone too? Off the face of the planet? Help me to understand this.
