S. O. S. Lagoon of Bacalar

GUSTAVO BARRABAS BUITRON ZARATE
Mexico

Nov 6, 2021 — 

Water is a vital element for all living beings, and the Bacalar lagoon is an important body of water that provides home to many species of fauna and flora; It also has the presence of stromatolites that help reverse global warming through the production of oxygen and the capture of carbon dioxide.

The predatory hotel industry and the touristic services of haul rides are polluting it, as well as the indiscriminate felling of trees and the contamination of the water tables by pesticides and fertilizers that provide too many nutrients and generate algae, coupled with poor drainage planning.

It is urgent to protect the natural heritage of future generations of Mexican men and women. In addition, it attracts more Tourism to preserve nature. And that would help to minimize the negative impact that the Mayan Train Project could have for this region of Quintana Roo to care for and protect nature and water. Work should be done in all tourism companies to help preserve the area.

In this way, we can contribute more to the transformation of our beautiful Mexico and feel happier and better human beings. Clean water and oxygen for everyone. ( Translated by Esdra Cordova).
