This regulation will be applicable as long as Mexico’s traffic light system remains red, orange and yellow in Baja California. Once it turns green, the general regulation of the nature reserves will be resumed.Continue reading “Regulation and Access Control to the Nature Reserves”
We are very excited to share what we accomplished this year thanks to the support of volunteers, donors and companies interested in protecting the natural heritage of Baja California.
Today we protect over 130,000 acres of natural areas in Ensenada, Sierra de San Pedro Martir, San Quintin and El Rosario through different conservation categories.
These areas are home to endangered wildlife (species such as kangaroo rats, pumas, coyotes, black brantas and snowy plovers), as well as their habitats (wetlands, forests, scrub, volcanoes and beaches).
Thank you to Hollie Böllen, their team and clients for joining the protection of Baja California’s wildlife by purchasing cause marketing products.
All proceeds will go to conserve the nature reserves, which are home to these incredible species.
As part of our catalog of cause marketing products, in 2021 we launched a campaign called Habitantes de la Baja to sell stuffed animals of 5 representative species. Hollie Böllen, a doughnuts company, was a point of sale in Ensenada.

The sixth edition of the San Quintin Bay Bird Festival was possible thanks to 200 people. This year we launched a virtual and in-person schedule to celebrate migratory shorebirds that come to the bay every year. More than 35,000 migratory shorebirds rest and feed in this natural sanctuary that we protect every day.
The pillars of this edition were citizen science and community art. First, we inaugurated the festival with the birdwatching marathon, a fun competition that allowed participants to find and observe birds surrounded by nature.Continue reading “Sixth San Quintin Bay Bird Festival”
A glance into the natural world of San Quintin
For centuries art has been a tool that has helped us to know and understand the natural world. Before cameras existed, explorers and painters showed us the nature that surrounded them through drawings, painting and other disciplines.
The collective exhibition Travesia (journey in English) seeks to share the source of inspiration that nature provides. It’s part of the San Quintin Bird Festival and the Community Engagement program.Continue reading “TRAVESIA art exhibition”
