Ticos put hands on Head Harbour

The Costa Rican government, through the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Telecommunications (Minaet), began the restoration “assisted” the wetland located adjacent to Lake Harbour Head.

This is the site of 2.5 kilometers long, will compete for the Ticos to Nicaragua in a lawsuit in the International Court of Justice in The Hague (ICJ).

Costa Rica speaks of “recovering” environmentally 300 hectares, although the site was never severely impacted by Nicaragua, whose government in 2010 cleared of weeds the natural channel called “first pipe” by engineer Edward Porter Alexander referee, who defined the border between both countries, as an award when he played the Jerez-Cañas Treaty, from 1887 to 1900.

Costa Rica’s work is focused on Head Harbour, a swamp that the Jerez-Cañas Treaty defines as a Nicaraguan, but from the year before that is intended by the Costa Rican government, taking advantage of a gap in the exact demarcation of the border in that area.

For “environmental restoration”, the Minaet has 8 specialists of this ministry on Monday visited the area, as well as permission from the International Court of Justice, the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands and notify the government of Nicaragua.

The Costa Rican government also has 839 volunteer fire fighters, NGOs and environmental associations who offered to support the program, according to Environment Minister Rene Castro.

Upon entering the area, the Ticos found a dozen Nicaraguans who performed environmental work in the vicinity of the wetland, but there was no dispute as on other occasions. Brigades of young volunteers from Nicaragua have attended the area to reforest the country.

According to the government of Costa Rica San Jose intends to do an “ecological park” in what they call “island Calero”, a small island located off sediment Harbour Head, Nicaragua.

Castro speaks of a park that invites the arrival of tourists and generate economic returns to his country.
