Well, hopefully at least. A press release from CEDO has announced that the wetlands at Bahía San Jorge were named as one of seven new sites in the List of Wetlands of International Importance of the Ramsar Convention in 2010.
I think that's good news. You can see the whole press release at The Tides: http://rptides.blogspot.com/2010/02/intercultural-center-for-study-of.htmlThe declaration of Bahía San Jorge’s wetlands as “Wetlands of International Importance” increases support for sustainable use. This declaration helps protect its ecological integrity, while continuing to maintain important ecological functions and environmental services like the fisheries productivity and nutrient budget. According to the Intercultural Center for the Studies of Deserts and Oceans, CEDO, “it is very important that the ejidos could take advantage of this designation”, so they recommend “to work together with them in order to look for economic and ecologic improvements”. The benefits of the conservation of this and other wetlands are very important for the fisheries and aquaculture of the region.
