Don't Destroy Pagan Island

The U.S. Marine Corps has found a rich and beautiful island, falsely called it "desolate and uninhabitable" (despite the fact that many species live there, including homo sapiens), and proposed to make it a live-fire bombing range.

This is very sad. From the Save Pagen Island website:

"Pagan is a small island in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). It is one of the most biologically and geologically diverse islands in the archipelago, and is home to many threatened and endangered species, some of which are found nowhere else in the world. Aside from its stunning beauty and rich ecological resources, Pagan is also one of the most habitable of the northern most islands in the CNMI. In fact, this island has supported the ancestors of Pagan islanders for over 3,000 years, as evidenced by Chamorro stone ruins found skirting her beautiful beaches...

The clearing required for live-fire training, and the ballistic disturbances resulting from such actions (which could include everything from artillery to bombing) will most certainly jeopardize Pagan and cause, disturbances to its rich agriculturally and ecologically valuable topsoil, an increased risk of fire during dry summers, erosion and consequent destruction of Paganís coral reefs, and would risk extinction of Paganís unique flora and fauna."

There is a link to a petition on their web page :


We need to heed the scientific findings referencing the vital importance of preserving healthy ecosystems, biodiversity, and coral reefs,

noted and signed but one would not go through. Since I am a Mrs. I figured that prefix was all I would need but it insisted on a suffix of Sr. or Jr. of which I am neither of those. What the heck?
