    Por Carlos Gasca.- With over 1000 tonnes of trash at the Trash Transfer site, neighbors are complaining about the proliferation of flies and the odors, which worsen during the midday heat. Former mayor of Isla Mujeres, Fidel Villanueva Madrid said that in over 12 years, the Trash Transfer Facility had never accumulated this much garbage. It is located on the perimeter road, a kilometer from Punta Sur, which is a busy area where there are hundreds of tourists passing by daily, and this represents a bad image.

Upcoming Events

Critter events...
It is currently the season for swimming with the whale sharks, and turtles are mating offshore & nesting on the eastern beaches. The mating is visible by day, especially off Punta Sur, the South Point. The nesting happens in the wee hours, and there are Tortugranja personnel, volunteers, and Naval staff monitoring the beaches to prevent people from disrupting them, and to gather and transport the eggs for incubation.
       By far, most of the turtles nesting in Isla Mujeres are Green turtles (called Blancas in Spanish), and the second most common are the huge Loggerheads, and there are some Hawksbills.  The Green turtles take ~60 days to hatch and the hatchlings are released by the public at events at dusk on Media Luna or Guadalupana beaches. The releases usually start around the end of July & are held periodically until early October.
    Lately the water has been very calm and there have been many manta rays, with many swimming upside down, in addition to many whale sharks. Offshore from MVC, we have been seeing dolphins & turtles from the balcony, and lotsa big fish while snorkeling. 

 There are small red crabs that migrate to & from the sea in July, watch out for them at night on the coastal road at the southeastern part of the isle.
  Lobster season began July 1 and continues until the end of February.

Sunset & Moonrise 'event' tonight!!
The Super full moon will be rising at 8:18, after the sunset at 7:30 (and about an hour later nightly) link 
 Last night the sun slipped behind the clouds without much fanfare. At moonrise there was still a fair amount of light, so la luna appeared above the clouds on the eastern horizon as a pale orb that was barely noticeable, gaining brightness as it rose, until it began casting its light on the water & creating that fabulous line of reflection upon the waves. Tonight it rises an hour later, when dusk will have faded, and is more likely to be big and orange. Moonrise last evening,photo by Tony Garcia
