NO to resort "Cocodrilo" at Golfo Dulce, Costa Rica

This petition is awaiting approval by the Avaaz Community
NO to resort "Cocodrilo" at Golfo Dulce, Costa Rica


Why this is important

Cocodrilo Bay wants to realize a megaproject of marina and resort with a capacity over 300 Boats on 16.000 square meters, facing the wildlife sanctuary “Refugio de Vida Silvestre Preciosa-Platanares”. This megaproject is threatening the delicate balance of the ecosystems in this area, which would be highly affected by the possible effluents. In addition the sound level produced by the boat traffic would affect the echo-orientation of the located dolphins and the whales passing by once a year. Furthermore there is a risk of accidents with the propellers of the boats which can dismember turtles. We have several marina in Costa Rica and we know the irreversible environmental and social damage produced by those projects, like prostitution and drug dealing. We ask Avaaz and the whole word to raise their voices and help us to protect our beloved Golfo Dulce in the name of all creatures living in his waters.
