Protect the Dry Harbour Mountains in St. Ann from Mining

The Dry Harbour Mountains in St. Ann are under threat from being mined by xxx against the advisory from National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) and Natural Resources Conservation Agency (NRCA). The Government of Jamaica has overturned a rejected application for permits for quarrying and mining.
The mountain range is of ecological importance as it is one of the last pristine dry limestone forests in the Caribbean. The trade off of 100 jobs for the ecological disaster, including seawater and groundwater pollution, air pollution, land slides and the loss of critical indigenous species that will occur is not worth it.
NEPA proposes that ecotourism for the area is a suitable economic driver to replace mining in the area. This pending disaster will impact us all, therefore we need to have our voices heard.
