The Promise of Ecotourism


Save the Whales Again may be an international battle cry, but the movement to save the gray whales that migrate to Mexico is practical and urgent. Their yearly journeys to the coast of Baja California, once thought to have been made safe, are becoming dangerous once more, despite the gray whales recent (1995) status as unendangered. The situation puts the whales at risk again because not enough has been done over the past 15 years to ensure their future. If your list of one of the things to do before you die includes to visit Mexico and see the gray whales frolic in Magdalena Bay, you can help support sustainable tourism, as well as the region’s quality of life by supporting Pax Terra’s plan to create a sustainable tourism initiative for Baja. We can become a primary source for ecotourism information and encourage visitors from around the world to come to the lagoon complex off the coast of Mexico. This will provide an alternative means of livelihood for fishermen and others whose work may make the region inhospitable to the gray whale. The quality of life for those who live near the Baja cost—and ours—will be significantly enhanced by the growth of a sustainable ecotourism industry.
