Mundoers were able to visit a potential new environmental health projects with the conservation group, Sociedad Ecologica de Occidente (Western Ecological Society) in the Bahia de Banderas area. We were able to meet with Mr. Oscar Aranda, a biologist who founded the organization and has dedicated his research and work to protect marine turtles and mammals and improve the environmental conditions in Mexico. Mr. Aranda was recognized as one of the CNN Heroes for Saving the Planet in 2010.
Isa Mundo will be assessing how we can collaborate with Mr. Aranda to support his present and future conservation projects in Mexico.
