Good news: Sooo… (its not news but) we’ve begun the application process of the conservation of the dunes of El Soccorrito. I hope for this to be the beginning of a series dune conservation projects. The goal is to start from Playa El Socorrito, Baja California. and connect and create a network of communities to El Pabellón, in regards to conserving the dune systems of San Quintin. It looks like we will have El Socorrito’s dunes (including the intertidal) under conservation status as soon as mid-2015. Wish us luck!
Hi everyone! I’m Baja California working with relatives on a dune conservation project. My friend Lidia is helping out as well. She started a GoFundMe, in order to help fund-raise her stay. Check it out! Every penny counts and all of it goes towards a good cause.
“My friends and I are currently focusing on creating a marine preserve here on the shores that run from El Soccorrito to San Quentin. This is only one of the many goals we have established here in what my dear friend’s grandfather calls his “Shangri-La”. Eventually, our dream is to have a well-established reserve with sustainable eco-tourism, rehabilitative fishing methods to help reduce if not eliminate overfishing and scarcity, and a community space/ establishment that provides local food, herbal teas, tinctures, tonics, as well as a space that can host art and music events for the community here and at large.” .
