Ante posibles construcciones en zonas sensibles como la Península de Chacmuchuch

With the potential for high density development on the mainland area  of Isla Mujeres, there could be revisions to the Ecological Program for the municipality, said the director of Ecology,  Cristina Medina Figueroa. This review could include the areas of  Punta Sam, Playa Mujeres, Costa Mujeres, Santa Fátima, and La Angostura, among others. There are building projects whose maximum density should be 30 percent and not 40 to 60 percent, which appears to be under consideration at the Peninsula of Chacmuchmuch, which is part of this municipality by Isla Blanca.
     There are projections of construction of hotels with a combined total of ~25,000 rooms, including medium and long term rentals. However this would endanger plants such as the mangroves that abound in these areas, and there is roadwork planned from the last (PAN) administration that could obstruct the natural passage of seawater. Environmentalists want to reclaim  the area called La Angostura to maintain the area's natural oxygenation over more than 12,000 hectares. This area is considered a "nursery" for marine life along the Northern Zone of Quintana Roo. 
    There is no information available about a request for a civil partnership to convert the perimeter of the lagoon into a reserve, rather than just one sixth as was passed by the government of Quintana Roo, which will initiate the Program of Management in 2014, along with the  Laguna Manatí.

For the weekend of Buen Fin, there were restaurants and shops in Isla Mujeres offering discounts. Sales increased between 20 and 30 percent for some retailers and restaurants, however this was also due to the long holiday weekend for Revolutionary Day. The president of the Chamber of Commerce estimated about half of the businesses who are members participated in the discount program, offering discounts up to 30 percent, hoping to attract both tourists and local residents. Some local citizens have received their bonuses and other benefits and were taking advantage of the discounts, and there was no shortage of families and young people celebrating int he restaurants and bars downtown.

Isla Animals  Daily Update: Two days ago I got at least ten emails about a dog that had fallen off of a roof and injured it’s leg. I went over to investigate and she was half of a pair of dogs called Chocolate and Vanilla. It appears that these two dogs have been abandoned and they’re obviously not doing well on their own. Last week a woman named Kelly brought me Chocolate who had been hit by a car. He had a wounded back foot and horrible scrape along one side of his body. We took him to the vet where he stayed for a week and got TLC and anti-biotics. When Kelly took him back to his street Vanilla was ecstatic to see him. Then I got the calls about another hurt dog and this time it was Vanilla, she has broken her front leg. Eileen and I took her to Cancun yesterday and had an x ray done, apparently it’s a nasty fracture; she can’t use it at all. She’s still in Cancun while we decide what should be done. These two dogs are sweet, they must have been loved and they definitely are not doing well on their own but I was so impressed by the number of calls that I got from people who lived nearby and cared about these dogs. Unfortunately I can’t take this pair in because of the distemper outbreak, it’s not safe for the dogs that I already have. A big thank you to Kelly who set up a monthly donation and brought our pledges up to 1,405.00, we’re getting there. http://islaanimals.org/help/donate-animal-rescue-isla-animals.html
