PUNTA PARAISO en San Pancho: CARTA de Jean-Michel Cousteau´s OCEAN FUTURES SOCIETY al Presidente Municipal de Bahía de Banderas, NAYARIT
Santa Barbara, CA Diciembre 11 de 2017
Dr. Jaime Alonso Cuevas Tello
Bahía de Banderas, Nayarit
Esteemed Dr. Cuevas,
concern, we received detailed information about another harassment to the
ecosystems of the State of Nayarit, a region of Mexico that is very special in
community of San Francisco, or San Pancho, as it is more commonly referred to,
look on with the feeling of impotence at the destruction of its beautiful
beach, some part of it is land gained to the sea, and this now is a threat to
its ecologic integrity.
problems of the water quality are vital as they are in other parts of the
Nayarit coast. The contamination of the rivers, as in the case of the Ameca
River, was signaled by our General Director for Latin America, Mr. Ruben
Arvizu, in April of 2016 during the International Forum of TerritorioInsular, the Coasts of Nayarit were at the
were poorly received by the authorities that attended the event, who were
dismissing his complaint as false and without proof. We know that region of
Mexico very well. For three years 1990-1992, we collaborated with the then
Governor of Nayarit, Celso Delgado in the creation of a Touristic and Ecologic
Plan for the Coasts of Nayarit.
studies, carried out mainly by a group of more than 150 technicians and
scientists from Mexico, had as their goal to precisely carry out actions that
would prevent damage to ecosystems and to the inhabitants of the whole region.
international and Mexican media covered the news that this was indeed something
exceptional and an example to follow in other parts of the world. In the month
of September of 1992, in Guayabitos, Nayarit, in a special ceremony, delivered
to the then president of Mexico, Carlos Salinas de Gortari, the studies and
Here I want
to cite some of the words of the president Salinas, which we have compiled from
video scenes that we have in a documentary that we are producing and that will
show some of our actions in various in various parts of the world including the
Coast of Nayarit:
assume a commitment, that any development plan has to give attention to the
ecosystems and to promise a sustainable development. This is the promise that
we gave at the recent conference in Rio de Janeiro, so we are committed to
signing the corresponding agreements, in particular, the protection of the
ozone layer and the relative care of the biodiversity. With respect to Nayarit,
it has been proposed that there be a creation of a counsel, a Council of
Integration Plural, diverse, with the inhabitants of these communities, with
experts and persons of knowledge, who have come prepared by their own
authorities. It has been proposed that it be a council of awareness for the
coast of Nayarit. I would encourage and propose that it be a council of all of
the coast that encompasses Nayarit, Jalisco and Colima. In this way we will
work harmoniously in a region where the nature does not distinguish between its
state borders, nor its children, in the sense that we all want a greater
harmony and better development."
have been 25 years since those studies and the reality is very different.
In the case
of San Pancho, we have witnessed scenes of peaceful protests by many sectors of
the population, including that of foreign residents who share their alarm concerning
the continuous works of the development Punta Paraiso, in spite of PROFEPA
giving orders regarding damaging circumstances and serious breaches related to
the construction project.

love of the Mexican arts and culture, and respect for the environment and

seems both of whom are unaware of the serious consequences that this

discontent by both the local and regional population is growing with each day
that passes without the correct response from the authorities. We are living in
different times from those of a few years ago. Citizens struggle with more
vehemence for their rights and for those of future generation. We hope Mr.
Municipal President, Jaime Alonso Cuevas Tello, that you will act rapidly and
with prudence to avoid unfortunate actions and that justice will prevail, also
the order and respect for citizens' rights.
