At the recent gala celebration of the 27th Anniversary of the Bay of Loreto National Park (PNBL), Dr. Victor Sanchez Cordero presented the 'Certificado de Lista Verde de la UICN' to the Bay of Loreto National Park. It was announced that the Park has been Certified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (UICN) as a "Green Listed" site, one of 77 protected sites globally certified and recognized as achieving ongoing results for people and nature in a fair and effective way.
With air temperatures hitting the high 90s this week, one has to admit that our mild Loreto spring has slipped away. While the afternoons feel steamy, the warm nights are a bit of heaven for outdoor dining and evening walks. Loreto beaches are filled from afternoon into the rise of moon behind Carmen with children splashing in the warm water and the spread of family picnics on the sand. Volleyball games pop up at the north end of the Malecon, and kids chase one another on scooters up and down the waterfront. There’s a sense of happiness permeating the air.
Environmental Education has always been at the core of Eco-Alianza’s initiatives. We believe that to teach children is to train the next generation of environmental leaders, thus furthering a sustainable society. Our experience is that what our youth learn, intellectually and experientially, they share with peers, siblings and parents, thus expanding the reach of our programs. We provide them with life tools, such as critical thinking and problem solving, with a foundation in conservation.
