Water export tunnels threaten survival of sandhill cranes

Ironically, the Phil and Marilyn Isenberg Crane Reserve, named for the former chair of the Delta Stewardship Council who oversaw the release of a Delta Plan that would result in the destruction of the Bay-Delta Estuary, would be negatively impacted. Phil Isenberg also served as the Chair of the Delta Vision Blue Ribbon Task Force that recommended the construction of a peripheral canal or tunnel. In addition, he also served as the Chair of the privately-funded Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) Initiative to create alleged "marine protected areas" on the Central Coast.
