This major project has not only created health hazards and impacted household water systems. The damage done by the huge machine scraping bare all life in the arroyo is devastating to many levels of the ecosystem in and around this waterway. |
I don't know who is behind this project, or if any of the organizations that are entrusted to protect and conserve biodiversity were consulted. I doubt this mess will achieve any of their perceived goals, whatever they are. This violent intervention in the already compromised watershed is thoughtless, short-sighted, and cruel, especially taking place during breeding season for many amphibians, reptiles, butterflies, and birds.
I am a foreign guest in this beautiful country, so I am only expressing my opinion based on what I know and have learned about ecosystems. It is very tragic to look at what they have done. I want to say, "I'm sorry". Nature will her best to quickly re-grow and stabilize the damage.
