•••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.

      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

      I believe that further development of Culebra must be done with great care and respect for the island's natural resources and also for the people who live there. To allow development without regard to established laws which are in place to protect the natural integrity of the island would be criminal. I strongly feel that if government officials were to allow a corporation to destroy any part of the natural resources of Culebra in the pursuit of exploiting the island for financial gain it would be a shameful sellout. The people of Culebra look to their leaders and government officials to protect their long term interests and their home. Destroying mangroves to build a resort is a poor choice towards protecting Culebrans.
