Please simply click through to theBirds of Extremadura blogspot where more information is provided and a link to the petition to stop this development is present in the "SIGN UP IN DEFENCE OF THE BIRDS OF MONFRAGÜE. " title. This will require joining the petition on the AVAAZ website, but once registered (a simple and quick procedure), you can simply sign up for other petitions of this nature in a few seconds.

And please feel free to spread the word and this link to anyone you may think could be interested. unfortunately I'm on the verge of going away for a few days and so unable to write more, but the blogsite mentioned contains all the relevant information.
