rom September 8 to 13 Leslie Ponce de León, along with two more Cornell Lab Coastal Solutions Program scholarship holders, and Liliana Ortiz, from Pro Esteros, visited different shorebird conservation areas in the states of California and Oregon in the U.S.
At Pro Esteros, we focus our efforts on the conservation of the wetlands of the Baja California peninsula. For this reason this year we submitted a proposal to invest our efforts in five wetlands of the Baja California peninsula. We want to work with communities and companies to ensure that the government provides better services in waste management and avoid damaging the flora and fauna of these ecosystems.
Global Wetland Outlook: Conservation and wise use of wetlands are vital for human livelihoods. The wide range of ecosystem services wetlands provide means that they lie at the heart of sustainable development.

Para conmemorar los 30 años de Pro Esteros, decidimos darle identidad y relevancia a nuestro aniversario. Es por eso que, junto con las maestras Laura Susana Zamudio Vega y Gabriela Bacelis de la Facultad de Ingeniería, Arquitectura y Diseño de la UABC, involucramos a sus estudiantes a participar en el concurso del diseño y elaboración de nuestro logotipo del 30 aniversario de Pro Esteros.
