Lesson Title: 

The Dominican Republic Unprotected Once Again

The source text expresses opposition to a law passed by the National Congress in the Dominican Republic that reduces the size of a number of national parks and protected areas and allows them to become sites for hotels and other development in an attempt to attract foreign investment. To many Dominicans, the government is serving foreign interests rather than the interests of the national population.
