This is one of those things that chaps my A$$. NOAA Has no authority to do this, yet they assume they do. It has always been recommended to overfly sensitive wildlife areas with some altitude for this reason but it is a recommendation not a requirement. There will always be some bozo who makes it difficult for all of us, Sometimes the Bozo is us and sometimes its the Government.

BTW - I'll bet when NOAA wants to do something in & around these sanctuaries they use aircraft when they need to.
