Conservation Groups Sue to Protect Endangered Species from Water Park Development

The Center for Biological Diversity, Bat Conservation International, Miami Blue Chapter of the North American Butterfly Association, and the Tropical Audubon Society sued the National Park Service in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida for failing to protect the endangered Florida bonneted bat and Miami tiger beetle, and the Bartram’s scrub-hairstreak from the destructive effects of the Miami Wilds water park and retail development in South Florida. Plaintiffs are seeking declaratory judgment and injunctive relief.
