Ever wanted to dive down to the reefs of Cabo Pulmo? Or to get a better look at some of the more rare species you don’t see on every dive.
This spring 90 Cabo Pulmo residents and visitors were given a chance to do just that – and they didn’t even get wet.
SILVIA EARLE PRAISES
Two years past, famed oceanographer Sylia Earle named Cabo Pulmo as one of the world’s Hopespots – a special place that is critical to the health of the ocean – Earth’s blue heart.
Recently, Sylvia Earle and her Mission Blue team returned to dive in Cabo Pulmo Marine Park and talk with residents and scientists dedicated to the health of the reef.
In January 2016, BCI’s Resident Scholar, Ryan Anderson, published an article entitled “Islands within an almost island – history, myth, and aislamiento in Baja California, Mexico.”
The paper explains how the perception of Baja California as an island continued long after the geographic facts showed otherwise. The author suggests that the isolation, disconnection, and marginalization of the people of Baja Sur contributed to this.
