Grenada Dove vs Luxury Resort

I read a post about this from Mike’s Digiscoping Blog and thought I would pass it along. Apparently the Grenada Dove, an endangered bird estimated at about 180 individuals is going to have less room to exist. The Grenada government is selling off a national park to provide room for a luxury resort.

Read the whole article from Birdlife International. I just want to quote this:

“There’s a terrible irony in the Government’s willingness to critically compromise the continued existence of the Grenada Dove – which as the island’s National Bird is a symbol of the country’s distinctiveness and its culture – simply to provide sea-views to people from away. —Margaret Atwood & Graeme Gibson, Honorary Patrons of BirdLife’s Rare Bird Club
