Environmental Causes

The Yucatan is a karst, limestone terrain that in its nature is extremely fragile.  It is unique with its underground rivers, cenotes and the second longest coral reef.  What goes into the ground filters straight into the water system which is just one reason we must be diligent about protecting it.  That and the many animals and plants that inhabit this area.
