Letter of appeal
From the Bio Itza Committee, 19 November 1996. As the last indigenous inhabitants of the Petén's forest, the Maya Itzá have fought to maintain the forest, culture and language of their great civilization. Since 1991, when the Biósfera Itzá reserve was founded, this organization has pioneered the conservation of the environment. Appended is an open letter from the Ecologic Development Fund, 16 December 1996.
