Salva Tres Palmas: Proteger los arrecifes de coral de Puerto Rico del desarrollo irresponsable

La Reserva Marina Tres Palmas está amenazada por un desarrollo irresponsable que está causando que la contaminación por sedimentos fluya hacia el medio ambiente cercano a la costa. Esta contaminación está dañando el sensible ecosistema marino, incluidos los corales cuerno de alce y cuerno de ciervo amenazados, así como un lugar para surfear de clase mundial. El Capítulo de Rincón de la Fundación Surfrider hace un llamado a las agencias gubernamentales para que hagan cumplir las leyes ambientales para proteger este lugar especial. Firme la petición para exigir que la EPA, la NOAA, la DNER, la NFWS y la OPGe tomen medidas decisivas para garantizar que Bellagio LLC, Alfaya Estate LLC y otros desarrolladores operando en la cuenca cumplan con los términos de sus permisos de construcción.

Salva Tres Palmas: Protect Puerto Rico’s Coral Reefs from Polluting Development

The Tres Palmas Marine Reserve is threatened by an onslaught of rampant and excessive development that violates the Clean Water Act and generates excessive runoff that carries sediment into nearshore waters. This pollution damages the sensitive marine and coastal ecosystem, including threatened elkhorn and staghorn corals, and threatens a world class surfing break. 

The Surfrider Foundation Rincón Chapter and other local environmental groups are calling upon the responsible government agencies to enforce all applicable environmental and local planning laws to protect this unique and special place. Please sign the petition to demand that the state and federal regulatory agencies (EPA, NOAA, NFWS, DNER, OPGe) take decisive action to ensure that the developers of the Sueño de Aurora Project, Bellagio LLC and and all other developers operating in the watershed comply with all applicable environmental and planning laws, and their permit requirements.
