Environmentalists are clashing over the proposed restoration of Malibu Lagoon.The California Coastal Commission approved a multi-million dollar plan this year that aims to restore circulation to the lagoon's waters.

Some environmental groups fear the effort will actually cause more damage to the area that's long been a favorite spot for herons, egrets and other birds.

The group has filed a lawsuit seeking to block the restoration.
