Keeping contact with the community is key when developing projects in rural areas. Because of the ongoing pandemic our regular visits to Bahia Magdalena have been suspended making communication more difficult. Nevertheless, we continue adapting to new ways of communication and work from a distance.
Since the beginning of October, we started a social media campaign on Facebook to recognize the efforts of our community outreach leaders in northwestern Mexico. The campaign consists of a summary of the activities that the community outreach leader has participated in during their work with the Education for Conservation program of Pronatura Noroeste A. C. The posts can be seen on the program’s Facebook page: Educación para la Conservación.
A special recognition post was made for a new community outreach leader who currently lives in Bahia Magdalena and has been participating in spreading to others the online activities being carried out by Pronatura. Several other community outreach leaders who have worked in that region with different communities throughout the years were part of the campaign. We thank their efforts and their contribution to environmental education!
Currently, upon solicitation of the community, we are working on creating signs to be placed in strategic points along the shores of Bahia Magdalena to inform visitors about the flora and fauna there and what activities to avoid. These signs will be placed by the Guardians of the Mangrove to keep their environment and home safe!
