Revere Conservation Commission calls for cease & desist…..

When the clams and the whale washed up on shores of Revere Beach a few weeks ago, Interim Conservation Chairman Nick Moulaison Sr. gave the okay for everything to be buried on the beach in deep holes.

Now since a dead seal washed up on shore, he’s called for a cease and desist on any beach burials.

“How much more are we going to bury,” Moulaison asked. “We need a better game plan.

Troy Wall, DCR spokesman said prior to burying any sea life at Revere Beach Reservation, the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) seeks recommendations and guidance from the City of Revere’s Conservation Commission, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) and the Department of Fish and Game (DFG).
