Hello friends and neighbors of La Manzanilla,
We invite you to be participants in the creation, protection, promotion and rewards of our hopefully future marine sanctuary, the first of its kind on the coast, one of the few in the world, and a model for community based sustainability.
Visit our website that is now permanent owing to our ability to reach our goals. All info is in the notices.
Please forgive my Google translated Spanish but we want to get as much in Spanish now as possible. Go through the notices and watch the powerpoints. Don't hesitate to email me.
Next step is we are paying 255,000 (the bid) for Dr. Amilcar Magana from the University of Guadalajara and his team to do the baseline study starting on April 21st. THen we do community meetings to develop a management program. You all are more than welcome to come to these so watch for announcements.
The first goal is for CONANP to grants us national park status. Then the hard work of gaining pride along the coast for protecting this small, 16 square kilometer sanctuary and nearby mangrove. Education about the potential results that we hope will eventually duplicate Cabo Pulmo is now essential.
All the best,
