Arial Photographs of Ile Aux Deux Cocos


Return to: Press article

These photographs were taken on the 28th of October 2000.

Photographs A and B clearly show the extent of deforestation carried out on the islet "ile aux deux cocos" by the promoters. Photographs C and D show a piece of land denuded of all vegetation for the purpose of building a marina, reception and administrative blocks for the hotel project. All of the above works were begun without any Environment Impact Assessment! The promoters were issued a stopping order by the authorities.
