Petition: Reject Corralejo Pier Expansion
Straight from Change.org:
As it is well known, the expansion of the Corralejo dock will lead to the direct disappearance of 2 well-known and appreciated spots Punta Elena and El Muelle, and it is very likely that it will have a very serious impact on the wave of Lobos, the second longest right of Europe.
The project for the new port of Corralejo threatens to destroy the already fragile balance of the area by multiplying maritime traffic, adding noise, chemical and waste pollution to an already over-exploited area and above all devaluing what is most beautiful, our biodiversity.
It puts at risk multiple sports areas for the practice of surfing, an activity that generates profit at the labor level in the local community.
The development for which our islands must bet is one that is responsible with the environment, sustainable in the long term, maintaining the Canarian culture and tradition and all its incentives.
Let's promote ecotourism, the discovery of our nature to the world, protecting it for posterity.
The time has come when all of us, united, have to stop this monstrous project.
