Ensenada, Baja California, August 1, 2017 (PRESS RELEASE).- Biology graduate students from the Iztacala Faculty of Superior Studies of the National Autonomous University of Mexico will participate in an internship program at the nonprofit organization Terra Peninsular.

The interns named Alfonso Martínez Ávila, Carlos Lozano García and Aldo Franco Díaz will work on a conservation project in San Quintin Bay during August that include performing activities in the Punta Mazo and Monte Ceniza nature reserves, both protected by the nonprofit organization.

This project was achieved through a collaboration agreement between Terra Peninsular and UNAM, which resulted in the official registration of the internship program with the number #2017-12/63-5307 included in the Adaptive Management program.

The oceanologist Ricardo Domínguez from the Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education at Ensenada (CICESE) will lead the project. Some of the activities the students will perform are: defining fishery and hunting resources in San Quintin Bay, contributing to the biological inventory of the nature reserves using camera traps and elaborating technical datasheets of different commercially valuable species, to mention a few.

As part of the agreement with the National Autonomous University of Mexico, other students from the Iztacala Faculty of Superior Studies will participate in the internship program at Terra Peninsular in the following months to work on different conservation projects.
