Protect El Yunque Rainforest from Corrosive Development

Joseph Robertson posted this appeal in casavaria.com.

El Yunque is a sacred place, and the only true virgin rainforest in the US National Parks System. It is the most biodiverse place on the island of Puerto Rico and should be valued by all people across the world as a location of global natural heritage. The rainforest preserve is now under threat from corrosive development projects, including housing, transport, energy and tourism.

The new site Protect El Yunque is open to anyone who wishes to share their experiences of the beauty and energy of El Yunque, or to post updates on events, petitions, and efforts to halt all attempts to invade this tropical paradise with short-sighted development. (Se puede agregar información en inglés, en español, o como quieran.)
