    En Cancún ya destruyeron la mayoría de zona de manglar , no es raro que los constructores les vale poco la vida de la naturaleza

    How is possible to built a complex of villas in area that is protect by nature 2000? In Cyprus everything is possible that’s why we have capital controls and Troika to take care of us.

    This problem is unfortunately based on bad planning.. Since the number 1 income of Cyprus is tourism it is normal to invest to this department... this is not right though... the sad part is that people only come for these luxurious hotels and tourist attractions... Cyprus does not really have that much of nature to protect or to promote for tourists ... and this is really sad again because of mistakes people did in the past... I am totally against this tourist expansion to be honest but still not much work is done to find new sources of income... Destroy tourism in Cyprus and you basically doom the people there...

    2.5 million for a passport vs. the life of a whole species... And this is happening in Europe. Very well done #europeanunion
