     There are only @140 of these very special bears left. Not only do they have to cope with poison and furtive hunting, they now have this further threat to their habitat in the form of a mega ski resort project, all because some fat cats want to make a nice profit out of exploiting these mountains while conning the local people into believing that it will save their economy. It won't!
 Thankyou for signing!

Cantabrian brown bear country

The ignorance (both senses of the word) of building speculators in Spain knows no bounds when it comes to the environment....Here's another; Desertification in Spain

Over 30% of Spain is in immediate danger of desertification and the country has the 3rd highest rate of water consumption per capita in the world.
According to Greenpeace, another 316 golf courses are in the planning stages, an extremely worrying number considering the amount of water needed for the greens alone without even taking into account the water supply necessary for the residential complexes that accompany the construction of the courses. 
This is NOT an anti-golf petition per se, just anti the unsustainable proliferation of them in such an unsuitable country!
