I'm going to try and build some publicity and circulate information about the Mata Lagoon before its destroyed from ignorance.Current mentality for the lagoons is fill them and build on them. Understanding their importance is the goal.

Pass the word is all, info to all is the power of this.
The largest problem is not being aware.
Its just educating people as to the value of the Coastal Lagoons.
I believe if everyone understands their worth projects like this will fail.

Oxygen in the waters of the lagoons make the habitat alive. you can see on the google map the rust brown areas that have been cut of from water exchange have become dead zones.
A large concern about the road project is its becoming a dam for the water flow that literally keeps the lagoons alive.
The oxygen depletion (anoxia) allows sulfate reduction to take place. Consequently, hydrogen sulfide accumulates, provoking a large increase in the mortality of macrofaunal species that are the foundation for life in the Lagoon.
Look at the Google map again and notice the creek network between the blue alive lagoons and the rust brown color in the isolated ponds.

Good work Elbert. I hope something positive will come from this as this also applies to the massive lagoon destruction for the sewage pond subdivision.
