In Baja California we can find terrestrial and marine natural areas with high biological richness and environmental value, these areas have different protection categories.

Currently there are over 500 natural protected areas in Mexico that represent over 90 million hectares. This is part of the efforts of the federal government through the Commission of Natural Protected Areas, also known as Conanp. 

There are different natural protected areas in Baja California: 3 national parks, 2 flora and fauna protection areas, 4 biosphere reserves and 21 areas voluntarily destined for conservation.

Did you know that we have been working on marine conservation projects since 2017? So far we have focused our efforts in San Quintin Bay, which is considered one of the best conserved wetlands in Baja California.

San Quintin is a unique place that has certain oceanographic features that makes it a key site for marine biodiversity.

In 2016, we joined the Waterkeeper Alliance to maintain the bay a healthy ecosystem.

As part of our commitments with the alliance, each year we organize a beach cleanup to raise awareness by showing the effect trash has on marine ecosystems.

Also, we carry out biological monitoring on the rocky intertidal and seagrass meadows, this helps us generate data to find negative impacts, and make decisions that enhance the health of the bay.
