I was really upset to read in Bonaire E-News about both the past and proposed dredging of sand from Lac for construction purposes. This just seems like biting the hand that feeds you, from the point of view of preserving the diving industry on the island. So much of the marine life that attracts divers to Bonaire's reefs start their existence among the grasses of the shallow flats in Lac. I know that you recommended sending letters to the Bestuurscollege, urging against such ecological shortsightedness, but what else can be done...if anything.

The sand was not for building. It was used to ceate artifical beaches, which doubles the problem.

Let a lesson be learned from messing with "Mother Nature"....leave the Bay alone. It is not worth destroying the natural beauty and chain of life in the Bay to attempt to create artifical bathing/diving beaches and/or building development for the tourists......the same tourists who will cease to visit Bonaire IF the Bay and its environment is destroyed by Man.
