Surfing Baja : Punta Abreojos

I love Punta Abreojos which is located north of San Ignacio Lagoon on Baja’s Pacific Coast. It is a great place to do conservation, surf, and enjoy the best of wild Baja with a great village inhabited by people who protect their coastal and marine resources and love to surf. These are some images from our trip to Punta Abreojos in September to hold a regional surf championship for fishermen-surfers and their children.

This is what makes Punta Abreojos so special--a community of surfers and kids who love the beach and surfing.

Just heard that Mexico‘s Protected Area Commission (CONANP) announced the conservation of 299,000 acres north of San Ignacio Lagoon. This was gray whale habitat once under the ax by the Mitsubishi Corporation and destined to be one of the world’s largest industrial salt facilities.

Thanks to my colleagues at WiLDCOAST we were able to support this effort and other efforts to conserve one of the world’s most amazing coastal ecosystems.

Felicidades to all!!

It is not often you get great news about good things happening to save the planet!
