The Potential for Ecological Tragedy

Dear Source:
Environmental preservation, natural beauty and open space are becoming more of an ideal instead of a reality. Indigenous animal and sea life are endangered, the ecosystem is mindlessly being destroyed while over-development and greed for the dollar is becoming tragically more important than the quality of life for the Virgin Island community and it's future generations. We are trustees of nature, not it's owners, and we will pay for its destruction.
