2006, our project has entered its third season!
or here (2006)
to see how things have developed and have a look at
the wildlife of Yucatán.
you have been following its progress, there were two
big changes in 2005:
A Comité de Vigilancia was established
to authorize volunteer wildlife guards to help protect
jaguars in the study area. It is supported by local
and national authorities in México as well
as project partner Pronatura.
Two major hurricanes struck the state of Yucatán
last year. Followed by an extremely dry Spring, 2006,
forest fires burning the downed vegetation threaten
people, property and wildlife throughout the region.
Much of last year's corn harvest was destroyed by
the storms, so the project aides landowners with income
for re-clearing the trails and roads in the project
