Environmental Association for Latin America
Environmental Association for Latin America(EALA) is a nature conservation organization active in Costa Rica and Colombia, and occasionally in other countries in Latin America such as Cuba, Nicaragua and Mexico.
Main aim of EALA is to help preserve the natural environment of Latin America and its flora and fauna and take legal and/or other action where nature is threatened or unduly adversely affected by commercial activities or governmental authorities.
EALA provides information about the current threats to the nature and environment in countries of Latin America. We name a few:
- the uncontrolled development of coastal areas for tourism,
- surface gold and gravel mining projects,
- threats to sea turtles and their nesting beaches, the cruel killing of sharks, etc.
- the expansion of pineapple plantations which contaminate drinking water and affect fauna,
- the expansion, at the cost of nature, of african palm and soja plantations for biofuels, and eucalyptus and pine plantations.
