A few days ago we visited different protected areas with some of our partners to strengthen alliances and address the challenges of migratory bird conservation, wetlands and fire management.
We were joined by representatives from the U.S. Forest Service, the Secretary of Environment and Sustainable Development of Baja California, CONANP and CONAFOR. The tour included visiting the Sierra de San Pedro Martir National Park, the National Astronomical Observatory, the Monte Ceniza Nature Reserve and the Punta Mazo Nature Reserve.
During this tour we presented some of our most recent projects:
- The protection and conservation of the wetlands of San Quintín Bay.
- Reducing plastic pollution in the bay by working with oyster farmers to remove abandoned structures and improve farming techniques to make them more sustainable.
- Protecting the habitats of migratory birds that winter or nest in the bay. We recently installed fences and placed oyster shells on the ground to protect the snowy plover in Laguna Figueroa. The shells help the plovers camouflage with the environment and protect them from predators and vehicles.
- The work of the park rangers and community brigades in fire management in the Sierra de San Pedro Martir.
As a result, collaborations will be made to strengthen the conservation strategies of the national park, as well as to continue supporting the park rangers and community brigades with training and equipment.
