The non-profit organization Terra Peninsular and researchers from the San Diego Natural History Museum (The Nat) have rediscovered the San Quintin kangaroo rat (Dipodomys gravipes) in Baja California; the organization is partnering with the museum and local authorities on a conservation plan for the species.
As part of the project “Conservation status of endangered species of San Quintín, Baja California” we visited the Punta Mazo Nature Reserve and surrounding areas to inspect monitoring sites of two little-known endemic species.
This internship has been a challenge with a steep learning curve, but after the first three or four days of the trip I was able to better help with bird surveys by offering my counts which contributed to accurate data intake.
The company Promotora Ambiental recognized Terra Peninsular for its work in favor of the environment during the 2017 period.
From January 22 to 24, 2018, we had the opportunity to participate in the workshop “Practical Tools for Management of Cooperation and Strategic Planning Systems”.
On December 22, 2017, Terra Peninsular participated in the 17th Christmas Bird Count in Ensenada, the 118th edition worldwide. This is one of the most anticipated events of the year for birdwatchers.
The Bird Watching Marathon consisted of: identifying the most bird species during the festival, promoting bird watching in San Quintín Bay as a healthy activity and providing entertainment for all ages and to highlight the importance of this place for bird conservation. Children and teens that participated in the marathon were very enthusiastic, looking for all the possible birds during the bird watching tours and writing them down on their pocket guides.
We like visualizing a ship to describe our experience in the 3rd Bird Festival of the past Saturday, December 9 of 2017, in La Chorera, San Quintin. And like any other boat trip, to fulfil its purpose we need two elements: destination and crew.
Like any other science, Archeology goes hand-in-hand with a continuous learning process, regardless of whether you are a student or an experienced researcher.
The intertidal zone is a place of transition where abrupt changes occur due to the movement of tides. Delimited by low tide and high tide, this area is classified depending on the type of soft or rocky soil.
