A proposed windfarm in the Karso del Sur Important Bird Area (IBA), Puerto Rico, could wipe out five percent of the global population of the Critically Endangered Puerto Rican Nightjar Caprimulgus noctitherus.

Vieques: Navy Leaves a Battered Island, and Puerto Ricans Cheer
2 May 03
VIEQUES, Puerto Rico, May 1—For most of the more than 9,000 people of Vieques, the official end today of Navy bombing exercises after more than 60 years was cause for an island-wide celebration of the conclusion of a painful era and the hope for a new beginning.
“People are very jubilant,” said Ardelle Ferrer, a 51-year-old artist who has been celebrating all week and is building a sculpture in honor of the island.
“Everyone is so happy seeing something that seemed so impossible.”
Vieques officials were to begin four days of activities celebrating the Navy’s departure in the first minutes of today, but the party started early when Gov. Sila M. Calderon arrived on Wednesday afternoon and addressed already jubilant residents.
Dozens of locals and residents from the main island, many wearing shirts reading “Celebration of Peace on Vieques,” clapped and cheered when the governor arrived at Isabel Segunda’s town square to the sounds of a steel band.
“This is a moment of great happiness and profound emotion,” Governor Calderon said.
“Together, we achieved the end of the bombing.”
However, Vieques still has a bad ecological legacy from the Navy presence.
And today, the US military is stil very lax in cleaning up what it has done.
