I can’t believe how quickly my three month internship with Terra Peninsular went by. The experience was an unbelievable gift, filled with unique experiences and wonderful people.
Hello! My name is Christine and this is my first blog post for Terra Peninsular. My traveling companion, Lupita, and I have been lucky enough to embark on a three-month long internship with Terra in Baja California. The internship is a partnership with Environment for the Americas.
A festival is not only about gathering a surprising number of people, it is about connecting, motivating and projecting us as an international community with the common goal to conserve and enjoy our natural resources.
From April 27 to 29 of this year, Claudia Guzmán, Community Engagement Coordinator, and Antonieta Valenzuela, Communications and Public Relations Coordinator, of Terra Peninsular attended the 9th Point Reyes Bird and Nature Festival in California.
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 2nd Bahía de Todos Santos Bird Festival was held on Saturday, March 10, 2018 in Playa Hermosa, Ensenada, and before the event different activities were offered as part of the efforts to raise awareness about migratory shorebirds.
The company Promotora Ambiental recognized Terra Peninsular for its work in favor of the environment during the 2017 period.
