Mexico beach project stirs concern

Activists say pumping sand back onto eroded Cancun coastline could cause disaster.

Years of overdevelopment and major hurricanes have stripped large parts of Mexico’s Caribbean coast of its sand.

In the tourist resort of Cancun, the government has embarked on a multi-million-dollar project to pump sand back onto the beaches.

Hotel owners hope the recovery project will bring tourists back, but environmental activists are giving warning it could cause a fresh ecological disaster.
