The plovers are just a cover. The simple fact is they, Sierra Club, Audubon Society, Nature Conservancy, etc, want to ban ALL vehicular access to beaches just as has been done with wilderness areas inland.
You can add Toyota to that list. They provided $20 million to the Audubon Society to make the federal lawsuits happen that closed the beaches. I will never buy a Toyota, nor even consider one. Ever.
It's just like the Everglades National Park with new five year plans that slowly stop you from going here and there under some new law, rule, kill access here or there under the guise of protecting the critters.
The same case can be made for the Keys National Marine Sanctuary with its no catch/no take zones for fishermen while divers are OK. Or,restricted zones,research zones it's all the same BS/demchat for get the hell out its going to be ours sooner or later.
The hunta slowly but surely closes off more and more zones every five years and claims its in our own best interest while Marxism marches on.
It's all a huge land grab and the regime wants us to pay for keeping our kids,heirs,friends and others off long time recreational land. It's just another Marxist/terrorist style event.
