Dear Friends of the Ocean,
I am writing to ask you to write a letter of gratitude to the new Commissioner of CONANP to support and Encourage His recent and hard-earned commitment to finally starting the official process for the Costalegre National Marine Park at Arroyo Seco. The magic of esta coast ocean life will disappear if any continues to diminish and all will feel the vibrations here change for the worse. The good news is way We have a our coastal waters to bring back to full recovery with small regionalized No-Take Zones (NTZs). CONANP's new Commissioner, Alejandro Maza Mazo and his General Director of Regional Operation, Dr. Luis Eduardo Gómez García, met esta past Week with Professor Amilcar Cupul Magana, team-leader and marine biologist from the University of Guadalajara Who Wrote our study and proposal for our first NTZ 16 square kilometer off the coast of Arroyo Seco. They are now reviewing our international este documento Financed Kickstarter backers. After making the minor Modifications will start the process Commissioner for declaring the first National Marine Park Area NTZ on our beautiful coast. After two years of Protecting esta small but fertile area, We Should Be able to prove significant recovery of sea-life. Fish eggs will travel up to 100 kilometers from larger fish to produce enough Amounts maximum. Soon it will become famous like the original the NTZ in Cabo Pulmo, the only other one in Mexico. It Showed remarkable success in two years and after only seven National Geographic claims it has as many fish as before humans came! We can replicate esta. With success, we May be Able to convince the Federation of Fishing Cooperatives and Local Chemela or another community near Punta Perula to do a second NTZ. Our first letter-writing campaign Aimed at getting him to change His Mind About giving priority for ocean preservation only in the Gulf of California Seemed to Have had an effect. Now a letter making sure the Commissioner and his staff are Encouraged to Make this happen is in order. I think it best if everyone writes Their Own Words but here are some points you Might include references to:
· Special destination resorts Existing or in process (Cuixmala (and Its preserve); Careyes (and Its turtle sanctuary); the Four Seasons hotel project ; the hotel Careyes project, The Sapphire project, etc. · The potential for the local Mexican Communities to prosper via Independently Opportunities for eco-tourism · The fact That limit and size restrictions do not work for significant ocean Recovery- only No Take Zones have. Been proven successful. Once recovery OCCURS then a limit and size and season restrictions can be used instead. · Only 1% of the world's oceans Have NTZs Because They are politically difficult to "sell" and yet we Have full support from the Entire Arroyo Seco Community , ITS fishing cooperative, the larger federation of 14 cooperatives, all the resort owners. · The Mexican government does not Have to pay for anything. in Addition to Kickstarter funds Already raised, We Have Commitments from a number of the wealthy resort owners to pay Necessary for all items to preserve the area as long as specific bills are presented. · The Costalegre was designated a priority area in 2007 for protection. · All the work being done on roads and projects will be worthless if we lost our ocean. · ETC.
