Found the below after reading the first few pages. Oh my!
A boater education permit program would
be established to promote shared stewardship
of marine resources, including shallow
sea bottom areas, seagrasses, and wildlife.
Operators of motorboats and nonmotorized
boats (including paddled craft) would
complete a mandatory education program to
obtain a permit to operate vessels in the park.
Program information would be tailored to the
type of craft and/or type of trip and would be
widely available at the park; on the Internet; in
gateway communities, marinas, hotels; and
from guides; etc.
A waste of resources IMO particularly where 'paddled craft' are concerned...
I believe Joe Bay is east of Flamingo just over from Little Madeira Bay where Taylor River lets out. If that is the case I don't see why they wouldn't open Madeira and Little Madeira Bay as well since they are west of Joe Bay. This would open Taylor River back up as an outlet of Taylor Slough.
