Protect Mangrove From Senseless Destruction

Mangrove Riandi

Target: Paul Michell Carrillo de Caceres, Mayor of Cancun

Goal: End the construction of condominiums and shopping mall to protect mangrove.

The Tajamar mangrove is being destroyed to build a shopping mall and condominiums in Cancun, Mexico. This area is home to an abundance of wildlife. Crocodiles, iguanas, frogs, birds, fish and other animals have lived peacefully in this mangrove for years upon years.

Mangroves are crucial to local ecosystems. They not only house many different types of animals, but also help protect coastlines during severe weather.

Temporary protection has been granted for the Tajamar mangrove thanks to the locals’ concern. Sign this petition and demand that it’s given permanent protection.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mayor Paul Michell Carrillo de Caceres,

The Tajamar mangrove in Cancun is currently facing a big threat. The mangrove may be destroyed in order to build a shopping mall and condominiums.

Mangroves are crucial to ecosystems. These areas are home to many different types of animals and help protect the coastline from storm damages like floods. The Tajamar mangrove contains crocodiles, iguanas, frogs, birds, fish and many other species.

It is not necessary to build a shopping mall and condominiums in this location. Please grant permanent protection to this mangrove.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
