Klopt helemaal! Dit is wat ik van het NP forum heb afgeplukt:
One of the world's best windsurf beaches is in danger and we need your help to save it. The government of Aruba is considering granting permission to build a hotel at the famous FISHERMEN'S HUTS beach. This is one of those rare beaches that has provided incredible windsurfing conditions to thousands of windsurfers of all levels for the last twenty years. This exact beach is also responsible for introducing more people to the sport of windsurfing than any other beach on this side of the Atlantic.
Building a hotel on this beach with off-shore wind conditions would completely disrupt the wind flow, making it impossible to access some of the most reliable winds anywhere.
If you've ever been to this windsurfing paradise you will know what a terrible loss this would be for all windsurfers. Whether you've been to Aruba many times or have been dreaming of going one day, please don't hesitate to help us by entering in a bit of information below, deleting this intro paragraph upto the word 'Excellencies' and hitting reply or copying the following letter and sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org
or send your own letter expressing your concern to the same address.
We need to gather 15,000 signatures and e-mails by November 15 to put an end to any future plans to develop this area.
Please copy and forward this e-mail to all the windsurfer you know.
I am deeply concerned by the plans for construction of a new hotel at the SECO DI ROGANS / FISHERMEN'S HUTS beach area in Aruba, and the relocation of the boulevard inland into the wetlands knows as 'salina'.
This development will be a severe threat to the significant environmental value of this sensitive beach, coastal area and salina.
Furthermore this area is a world famous windsurfing spot and the construction of a new hotel will put an end to that. Equally important;
there are social-, recreational- and cultural aspects that will be negatively impacted by this development.
The government of Aruba has stated on various occasions that it is committed to protecting the endangered Loggerhead sea turtle, as well as the
island's coastal areas and certain plants.
I would at this time like to inform you that I will not consider Aruba as a vacation destination, if the Government of Aruba allows this development to take place.
I urge you not to allow any development on this precious piece of coastal area. The local population as well as the visitors to Aruba, will thank you for practicing sustainable development and not crossing the boundaries where balance between environment and development is no longer attainable.
