Help us save Cabo Pulmo!

Cabo Pulmo has the largest coral reef system in the Gulf of California and possibly the oldest reef in the Northeastern Pacific. It is home to more than 250 species, including different species of small fish, giant manta rays, sharks and sea turtles, serves as the passing route of humpback whales and is a haven for protected species considered rare or threatened. Given its ecological importance and striking beauty, the Mexican federal government named it a Natural Protected Area in 1995, and UNESCO declared it a Natural Heritage Site in 2005.

Unfortunately, Cabo Pulmo is under threat! Hansa Urbana, a Spanish company, has decided to build a mega-resort next to this Mexican treasure.  The project name is Cabo Cortes, and its development could mean the destruction of this fragile habitat. 

We need your help to SAVE the reef at CABO PULMO before it’s too late!
