From the Enchanted Islands
Many thanks for the news you sent to my e-mail address, and I also
congratulate you for the service you are providing. I write editorials
for a monthly newspaper, El Colono, which is circulated in the Galápagos,
where I live. Your news helps me out with a radio program that I
produce and which talks about global marine preserves. Congratulations.

Carbon Sequestration Project
We are conducting the largest carbon dioxide sequestration project,
which represents fixation of 3.8 billion tons over 25 years. The
first phase of the project was already completed over 8,000 hectares.
It appears you are not aware of this project, known as the Rebirth
of the Tropical rainforest of the Colombian Orinoco (or Gaviotas
II). If you would like more information, we would be happy to provide

Interest in Report
You published a story titled ''MERCOSUR-EU: Environmentalists Against
Trade Accord''. I am writing to request more information about the
organizations that produced the report mentioned. We would like
to know which organizations were involved so we can contact them,
because our work is related to those issues.

Environmental Engineering Study - I am working in a sugar mill in
the Valle del Cauca, Colombia, and I am very interested in receiving
information about water management in South America and the world.
To know what awaits us if we don't stop our polluting, if we are
so cruel when it comes to engaging in activities that cause harm
to our environment.
Many thanks, and I hope to receive information and to be a multiplier
in the community to change habits in order to protect our environment.
