Protecting La Ceiba City

La Ceiba city sits right beneath the mountains of Pico Bonito National Park and several of the parks rivers flow out to the sea though the city. Ceiba is already prone to flooding and the more forest lost from Pico Bonito the worse the problem gets. Just the 2 days of rain we had when Hurricane Ernesto past though Mexico 2 weeks ago put plenty of streets underwater. With climate change set to increase hurricane intensity, it’s essential for the safety of this city that no more of the surrounding forest is lost.
