Golden Eagle Jan 2014

Accomplishments of Save the Golden Eagle Project until January, 2014

Dear Golden Eagle friends,

This year has begun with very opportunities for the Golden Eagle conservation in Mexico. First of all, the project “Save the Golden Eagle, Mexico's National Symbol ” has been steadily monitoring key habitat for food supplies in the northern side of the country. Thanks to the efforts of a nationally recognized NGO, Espacios Naturales y Desarrollo Sustentable (ENDESU), prairie dog populations, as well as the grasslands they depend upon, have been restored and monitored successfully. Additionally, Golden Eagle nests have been monitored throughout the past months by the project´s field experts, showing that several eagle pairs have successfully reproduced.

In five weeks, the second meeting of the Golden Eagle experts will take place in Mexico City. During this event the two main objectives are: 1) to formalize this group to be The Golden Eagle Advisory Committee in Mexico, and 2) to review the project´s outcomes after its first year in operation to determine best next steps.

We thank everyone who has contributed to make this conservation project possible through Global Giving donations. It is thanks to you that every day, more of these magnificent animals can find a healthy and safe environment in which to thrive. We hope you continue being part of it.

All the best,

 

Save the Golden Eagle Project Team

Learning how to build a Fuel Efficient Stove
Learning how to build a Fuel Efficient Stove

Dear Sustainable Rural Life friends,

This past trimester has been full of activity thanks to our ally in the Yucatán Peninsula, U’yool’ché AC, who are following the list of requirements necessary to project with certify their fuel efficient stoves as carbon bonds in the voluntary carbon markets. As we mentioned in our previous report, this project has been possible thanks to the funds donated by our social enterprise partner Servicio Continental de Mensajeria (SCM).

In the first week of December, U’yool’ché AC members received the first capacity building workshop in the certification process. During this event, each learned about the details that have to be observed in order to successfully sell carbon bonds certified by the Gold Standard. One of the most important things that were made evident was the need to find additional resources to give the maintenance to the fuel efficient stoves installed in previous years. Due to the heavy use given by cooking, a lot of these technologies require to be replaced and others, even built from scratch again.

The Global Giving donations have made possible to finance some of this maintenance, which has resulted in even more satisfied clients (all of them happy rural women) with almost brand new stoves. We therefore thank you all again for believing in this cause and helping support us; we hope you continue being part of it.

All the best,

Sustainable Rural Life Team

End of the Year MAR Leardership Report

Dear friends of MAR Leadership,

The end of 2013 is upon us, and we want to take this moment to share with you some of the things that we did this year in MAR Leadership.

2013 was a year of challenges and opportunities, reflection and learning. A year in which we proudly saw MAR Fellows shine and reach their personal and professional goals. Many of them obtained new positions and responsibilities; all of them achieved great things, promoting information exchange and synergies with their colleagues and contacts.

We’re attaching an end-of-year newsletter that describes the year in greater depth.

Thank you for your collaboration and support. We hope that 2014 is a great year for you and that we all continue working together for the Mesoamerican Reef System.

Warm wishes,

The MAR Leadership Team
