St. Lucia's protected areas are under siege. The latest target is Maria Islands Nature Reserve, home to five endemic reptile species, including the world's rarest snake, the St. Lucia Racer; and the critically endangered St. Lucia Whiptail lizard.
The proposed causeway joining the two islands to mainland St. Lucia will devastate the unique ecosystem, precipitate the extinction of the reptiles, and disturb the migrating bird population.
If we allow foreign developers to destroy everything that makes our island unique, there will be no reason for visitors to come here. Sign this petition to tell the government of St. Lucia to ban construction of a causeway to these beautiful island habitats!
