Vallarta Nature

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.

Volcanes Primary School Update

Isa Mundo was able to visit the Volcanes Primary School this month and also brought much needed educational supplies to the school. Mundoers were able to assess future needs at the school but also see the great progress since our last visit in April 2011.

The IMEC is now part of the overall Education Project in Volcanes and we hope to continue working in collaboration with the school and Cafe Roma to improve the centre and their project in 2012.
