If they're scaring birds away, I'll stay home
Feds: Nudists Scaring Off Rare Birds From Beach
MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service say that nudists are scaring off rare birds on Passage Key.
The Passage Key was established to protect native birds and serve as a breeding ground for them, but recently has been home to sandbars and is a popular destination for nudists.
"It is a federal crime to walk on the island," a Fish and Wildlife Service spokesperson told WFLA-TV. "Nudists are allowed to wade in the water off-shore, but are prohibited by law from being on the island."
The island is monitored by federal officials on weekends and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservative Commission helps out during the week, but due to the island being so remote, it is difficult to patrol it seven days a week.
