I thought you might be interested in knowing that the U.S. Department of Defense is planning a major military build up on the island of Guam. They plan to dredge up coral reefs to expand a harbor for a nuclear powered aircraft carrier that will only be here up to 63 days a year. This will threaten Guam's hawksbill turtles, green sea turtles, and spinner dolphins, as well as countless other reef fish.
