Celebrating World Wetlands Day 2021

In commemoration of World Wetlands Day on February 2, 2021, Pronatura Noroeste with participants from the communities of northwestern Mexico created videos to learn about the priority wetlands in the region and their importance. One of the participating communities was Santo Domingo, B. C. S. located in Bahia Magdalena.

We spoke to one of our Star Mangrove Guardians who, with her son, made a video showing one of the wetlands in the community while explaining what they are. In the video, a temporary wetland of a stream that fills up during rain season is shown and its importance is explained. This particular wetland was used to show that temporary wetlands are just as important as permanent ones.

The video was shared on social media via Facebook and YouTube with the required permission from the creators. They were shown to have great feedback and the participants shared it with their friends and family in the community.

On another note, the final design for the signs to be placed near the shore is finished. The idea is to motivate its visitors to enjoy the environment’s elements and avoid doing harmful activities. This design along with other signs that demonstrate the local flora and fauna will be placed by local community members along the shore near the mangroves.
