A massive tourist development is planned along the coast in Baja California Sur, Mexico. If it is built, the development will be a major threat to Cabo Pulmo National Park—which is described as “the world’s healthiest marine reserve.”

. Ask him to cancel the permits granted for the Cabo Cortés tourism complex and protect Cabo Pulmo from development.

Created in 1995, Cabo Pulmo harbors the best-preserved coral reef in the Mexican Pacific. The park is home to whale sharks, manta rays, humpback whales and sea turtles as they migrate up and down the coast.

Permits have already been issued for the “Cabo Cortés” urban-coastal complex. The proposal is to build thousands of hotel rooms and condos, marinas, and multiple golf courses in what is now an undeveloped region of the Gulf of California.

Authorization has been granted for the extraction of what amounts to 100 percent of the available water from the only healthy aquifer in this desert region, regardless of the needs of local communities and the area’s increasing vulnerability to climate change and recurrent droughts.

It's not too late to try to stop this development.
