Marina Costa Baja - Live the Dream Now!
The remote locations in Mexico host some of the last remaining natural open spaces on
the planet. As we proceed into the new millennium, it is amazing that much of Mexico
remains unspoiled. However, development poses a very real threat to Mexico's open
land and pristine waters. Virgin Mexico is subject to abuse from many sides,
including over-fishing, over-hunting, and over-development both on land and along
it's 6,000 mile coastline.
Fortunately, we as a global society are becoming increasingly aware of how
fragile our Earthly environment is, at a time when we can still make a significant
impact on an area as large as Mexico.
The goal of preserving Mexico's natural elements will not come easy. As a third
world country Mexico will always have the conflicting ideals of culture and
employment versus conservation. It is easy for an outsider to fight for causes
such as saving the turtle or the prevention of over-fishing. It is a different
perspective, however, if you and your family have had a history of living off of
the sea, and your very livelihood is at risk. The learning curve takes time, on
both sides, and it is difficult to keep everyone happy as solutions are negotiated
In the long run, there is good reason to believe that much of Mexico's natural
wonders can be saved. But it will take time and cooperation on all sides.
This section of Mexico Expo was designed as a forum for environmental causes,
