A Letter from Sierra Club President Larry Fahn:
Please join me in welcoming the Sierra Club of Puerto Rico as the newest chapter of the Sierra Club. The Board of Directors approved the chapter, the first chartered in more than 10 years, at our February meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Local members have been working hard over the last two years to protect their Isla del Encanto (Island of Enchantment).
You can help welcome the new chapter by taking action to protect a precious piece of pristine coastline that is under threat from development by the Marriot and Four Seasons hotels. The area, called the Northeast Ecological Corridor, is the last example of pre-Columbian coastline on the island and is home to a multitude of endangered species, including the Leatherback sea turtle, which nests there.
I can think of no better way to welcome our newest chapter than in joining them in this effort, which is part of our common fight to protect our remaining special places.
Sierra Club President
