Hey Marta,

You might just get your MLPA wish early. An enviormental group that watchdogs birds and petitions for protection for them has filed a petetion before the Fish and Game commission asking for protected status for the Xantus's Murrelet. They would like to close Anacapa and Santa Barbara to all night activity, including anchoring, fishing and diving.

In this one DFG is the moderator, stuck in the middle so to speak. They are working on rules for anchoring at the islands but no diving, fishing, loud music, or exessive lighting would be allowed. You would be restricted to the Ranger's anchorage at SBI and Frenchy's and the landing cove at Anacapa.

I'll post an FYI as soon as a have a minute to do it.
