Community workshops for new protected area
Dear Golden Eagle friends,
In the past three months we´ve had great accomplishments in our efforts to promote the conservation of our golden eagle population. These efforts were mainly focused on the necessary steps to establish the Semiarid Desert Protected Area in the state of Zacatecas, an area crucial for conservation since in its proposed 2.5 hectares resides the largest population of Golden eagles in Mexico
We are happy to share with you that in collaboration with federal and state authorities we have generated and implemented a communication strategy to establish the Semiarid Desert Protected Area in the state of Zacatecas. During these months we have also promoted with local delegates the importance of this Project, along with multiple workshops to incorporate the views of the local communities within the proposed protected area polygon, as well as the mining companies the operate in the region.
As part of the communication component, the Project has helped generate communication materials, including but not limited to radio spots, fact sheets, information booths in local fairs and religious events, to mention some. These have been crucial to inform the general public about the nature of the protected area decree, as well as the main implications of this proposal.
We thank everyone who has contributed to make this conservation project possible through Global Giving donations and hope to continue these important efforts. Thank you for your efforts and generosity towards this project.
All the best,
Save the Golden Eagle Project Team
