Butterfly Alert of the Week
Tell San Mateo to Preserve Habitat for Endangered Butterfly – Brookfield  Homes is about to destroy Endangered Species Habitat on San Bruno Mountain in Brisbane. Since 1983, developers have sought to trade houses and the promise of funds to be able to reap huge profits by destroying some of the last remaining habitat for Federally protected endangered butterflies and other rare species. In May 2009, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) removed an important protection for the Callippe Silverspot Butterfly by issuing an “incidental take permit” allowing the destruction of the butterfly’s habitat by Brookfield Homes in the course of building homes on the Northeast Ridge (NER) of San Bruno Mountain. San Bruno Mountain Watch Conservancy strongly opposes the USFWS’s decision, Brookfield’s 70-unit large home development, and  the expected final approval by the City of Brisbane, where the development is  located.  Please see
