For more than eight years he undertook the challenge of recovering the red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle), and successfully achieved the reforestation of a large area in his community. His free presentation will take place February 27 at 5:30 p.m. at Eco-Alianza’s CenCoMA headquarters in downtown Loreto. Come learn more from David about the importance of preserving mangroves and our wetlands as a continuing celebration of International Wetlands Day.
Postponed until October 16 / 17! Join us in celebrating the Ocean with two evenings of feature films, shorts, and presentations by filmmakers. This year’s lineup includes the Loreto premiere of Sea Lion Rescue by Emmy-award-winning cinematographer Johnny Friday, who will take questions after the screening.
