Here is an excerpt from the Snowy plover docent training manual.
Question: I just want to play ball with my friends. Why do you want me to move?
Reply: Active recreation is discouraged near the roost site because of the sensitivity of the area. The action of a group of people running around near the roost and tossing a ball through the air is very stressful for the plovers. They are forced to spend a lot of energy in vigilance -- watching to make sure that those stomping feet and flying balls are not a direct threat to their safety -- and running or flying away when they do feel threatened. That time and energy is better spent feeding and resting, so that they may have many, healthy chicks during the breeding season.

Santa Barbara has more than that beach that is kiteable and you know that. C-street is just a good 30 min away ..... So it's a bit lame if you have to insist kiting on the only beach that is closed

yes it really is too bad that it came to the "whacky-enviromentelist-treehugger-freaks" to bring it to the forefront, but maybe had the park come up with a long term sustainable plan instead of using an interim plan for nearly forty years it may never have come to this.
...Like raising our gas and food prices isn't enough.
