Protect Marine Ecosystems in Mexico

Mar 4, 2011

Project development and community workshops

We have been working closely with our local partner on the ground in Mexico, award winning Amigos de Sian Kaan. As we maintain work on current projects we are looking to develop new initiatives such as Acroporas characterization using state of the art remote perception tools and running photo transects to understand the distribution of coral reef species.

In addition we are continuing to promote sustainable development in these marine environments. We recently held a further three workshops in Puna Herrero, Maria Elena and Punta Allen. During the workshops we worked alongside local fisherman in order to establish ‘no take zones’ to help preserve endangered marine species.

Work on the project continues as always, many thanks for your support.
