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”.
