Monitoring Bahia Magdalena

Considering the biological importance of the Magdalena-Almejas lagoon complex, the National Commission for the Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity (CONABIO), has declared the area as a priority conservation site in Mexico. Particularly as: Priority Hydrological Region, Priority Marine Region, Priority Terrestrial Region, and Important Bird Conservation Area.

As part of our project we visited Bahia Magdalena last July. Our bio-monitoring team verified the flora, fauna and any activities that could affect the ecosystem. These lets us know the nature conservation status of the site.

Our field team took panoramic photographs of the observation points located strategically in the priority area covering a 360º angle from each one. Samples of the existing flora -especially those which were blooming- were taken, as well as evidence of the native and exotic fauna that travels through the site.

Moreover, on this visit we detected presence of garbage at some points. The garbage was collected, but it indicates visitors and community need to be responsable and take better care of the site.
