•••scroll down for english•••>    

   Estamos cansados de servir como testigos ante la debilidad que muestran nuestras agencias de gobierno. Estas agencias le ceden el poder de autoridad gubernamental, a desarrolladores adinerados.  La corporación San Ildefonso de Culebra, Inc., (compuesta por proyectistas de San Juan),  se ha dedicado a promover planes que conducen a la destrucción del Taller de ARTE, y su santuario de Mangle. La intención de esta corporación es el construir otro hotel completo con 'parking' subterráneo sobre los Mangles Rojos, (los cuales están protegidos bajo leyes ambientales federales, estatales y locales), SIN OBTENER PERMISOS.  

  Exigimos que nuestro gobierno defienda las leyes establecidas para proteger nuestro tesoro natural.


   We are tired of witnessing our government agencies yield to well funded developers. The corporation San Ildefonso De Culebra, inc. (composed of developers from San Juan, PR.pushes plans to demolish the ARTE studio and it's mangrove sanctuary. The intention of this corporation is to build another hotel complete with underground parking, leveling the Red Mangroves, (which are protected by federal, state and local environmental laws), WITHOUT OBTAINING PERMITS.

We demand our government uphold public policy to protect and conserve our natural treasure.

      Anything as important, unique and beautiful as this, and above all, in Puerto Rico, MUST be taken care of and preserved..

      This is a protected area that is constantly under the threat of over building/developing at the expense of nature.

      save what's left. culebra's single most unique asset is that is has not been overtaken by development. capitalize on that for the long term benefit of all island citizens rather than a few interlopers. why just become the same as every place else and make the same mistakes every other island has made

      Culebra has endured enough with the us armed forces occupying its territories for so long. It is a very special place. An enviromental heritage by land as well as sea. We need to protect and honor culebra and it's families for centuries to come

      as a visitor to culebra it is very disturbing for me to think of development at the expense of nature, it must be devastating to the residents of this paradise
