Protect El Yunque Rainforest from Corrosive Development

Protect-el-yunque

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 Protect El Yunque site 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.

Lush natural environments, like this Hawai’ian landscape, require a complex array of systems, operating in flux, but with stabilizing tendencies. Ecosystem health is the microcosmic measure of climate health. Ecosystem collapse is the sign that climate patterns are deviating in troubling ways, failing to meet the expectations they have built into the natural environment over millions of years.
