Youth Climate Challenge Team, Club Juvenil de Fotógrafos de Naturaleza, recently created a new documentary to share their story and the important work they are doing to help protect and bring awareness to San Quintín Bay (Mexico).
“Our community is surrounded by volcanoes, dunes, and wetlands of international importance. It is a habitat for thousands of species and migratory birds and a site of high oyster production. In addition, there are agricultural fields all around the community, this is one of the principal sources of employment for the population. Unfortunately, we are facing great challenges because of drought and contamination. This is why we want to inform and raise awareness in our families, friends, and people from the community about the appropriate use of natural resources around us, the sustainable use of water, wetland protection, and the elimination of illegal dumpsites created in the zone.”
