Don´t let us destroy the Gulf of Fonseca
Welcome to Honduras, a country in Central America.
I am Francisco Diaz, a Honduran worried about the environment of my country.
Sadly, I notice how people destroy the protected areas of the Gulf of Fonseca in the south of Honduras as a result of poverty, greed and the extension of the major ports of the shrimp fishers. / Sadly I notice, as a result of as a result of poverty, greed and the extension of the major ports of the shrimp fishers, how people destroy the protected areas of the Gulf of Fonseca in the south of Honduras.
Between 1983 and 1985 I did my military service in this area. In those days ‘el Estero’ was a place of peace and beauty.
Not long ago I went back to this area and sadly I noticed that many parts of the mangrove had gone because of deforestation. This deforestation ended its biodiversity.
Consequently, people can no longer provide in their daily needs and this is particularly true for the most underprivileged.
Right now, the residents of the communities La cuchilla and el Carmen are fighting for their rights to continue to fish in the ‘Berberia’ winter ponds. It is one way to support their families. However, there are other issues that pose a threat to continue fishing.
The Gulf has been polluted by chopping down the mangrove forests. This is due to the damage we caused and because of the irresponsible concessions which were made in these areas.
People have forgotten their mission. The Bible says: "God took man and placed him in the middle of the garden of Eden to develop it and to take care of it", and not to destroy it.
NO AGAINST THE DESTRUCTION OF THE GULF OF FONSECA !!!
