Humboldt Baykeeper’s Jen Kalt is one of nine women featured in the Times-Standard's Monday Magazine, a new publication celebrating local women in business.
Kalt says that the lack of enforcement of many environmental laws in Humboldt County is “severe” and criticized decision makers who she said have “enabled” businesses to operate outside of those laws.
“I think that’s an injustice to the people who believe in running their business in ways that follow the laws and protect the environment and community,” she said.
“Industries come and go, but the bay and rivers, if we destroy them, they’re gone forever.”
