The following is quoted from the CaboPulmoVivo.Org website:
Dear friends of Cabo Pulmo Vivo, it is with great joy that we inform you that SEMARNAT, the federal environment ministry, has decided to revoke the environmental permits that it had granted for Cabo Cortes. This represents a great victory for those of us who love Cabo Pulmo and believe that a sustainable tourism model is possible.
We want to thank you for all of your support. Whether you helped spread the word about this webpage or helped us collect signatures, congratulations are deserved by us all. This was, above all, a collective achievement. Recognition should also be given to the accurate and timely decision by SEMARNAT, which showed a welcome sensibility to the voice of civil society. We should be filled by hope in knowing that the voice of organized citizens is capable of creating great changes, when backed up by sound science and presented in a respectful way, through the appropriate institutional channels.
Cabo Cortés, as would be the case with any person or company, has the right to request these environmental permits again, be it with the project we know, or a modified version. We trust that, if they so decide, more attention will be paid to the information they present to the public, to the voice of the local community and to the current planning instruments for the region.
As for this webpage, we have closed the signature section, but please continue to come back, to check for updates, future events, images, publications and all Cabo Pulmo related information.
