The President of COSTA RICA is allowing MASSIVE DEFORESTATION of the Southern Caribbean coast for tourism investments!

The Municipality of Talamanca, Costa Rica, published on June 16th, 2023 a Coastal Regulation Plan that will allow destruction of our coastal ecosystems, inconsiderate building on the coastline and loss of its fragile biodiversity.

Government denies actual running water shortage, plans to allow land segregation and construction density up to 70%, also wants to increase property taxes that local communities won't be able to afford!

We have until August 4th 2023 to react and stop that environmental disaster!


¡El presidente de COSTA RICA está permitiendo una DEFORESTACIÓN MASIVA para inversionistas turísticos!

El 16 de junio la Municipalidad de Talamanca, Costa Rica, publicó un Plan Regulador Costero que permitirá la destrucción de nuestro bosque costero, abriendo las puertas a una construcción desmesurada de la costa y la pérdida de su frágil biodiversidad.

El Gobierno niega los problemas de abastecimiento de agua, planea permitir la segregación de los terrenos y una densidad de construcción de hasta el 70%, a la vez que va a incrementar los impuestos que las comunidades locales no van a poder pagar!

¡Tenemos hasta el 4 de agosto de 2023 para reaccionar y parar este desastre medioambiental!
