Agapito: Allay to the environment

Led presentation of three projects to maintain ecological balance

Agapito, aliado del medio ambiente

Encabeza presentación de tres proyectos para mantener equilibrio ecológico

Thre major projects focusing on environmental protection were presented this morning (2/8) by the Association of Friends of Isla Contoy and the Scientific Research Center of the Yucatan, at the town hall council room. The first talk was about a quality control study at Isla Contoy park. The next was about the progress of the project Living Corals (Corales Vivos). The third was a presentation about the protection and care of whale sharks, given by Rafael de la Parra, director of Project Domino. It was proposed that marine buoys be placed to mark the boundary of passage of small boats and thereby avoid their propellors, which damage and mutilate a considerable number of the largest fish in the world. (The boats with whale shark tour permits have been required to have a special sort of propeller which stops when it comes in contact with an object.) The whale sharks come near Isla Mujeres during the month of May so the intention is to place these buoys for the 2014 season.

Strays in street near kindergarten "Isla Mujeres"

Parents who are concerned about the large number of strays near the kindergarten are asking the Department of Ecology to intervene. They are concerned the dogs could cause an accident for the parents who arrive and depart on scooters, or that a small child could be bitten. A parent noted that in the evenings children who go for walks or ride bicycles in colonia la Gloria are chased by dogs. Motorcyclists in general have also experienced this, and they increase their speed to escape, which increases risk and could cause someone to be run over.  Another parent said if a driver inadvertently hits or runs over any of the dogs that roam the street, the owner immediately is on the attack, but the animal owners look the other way when their dogs cause damage or injury. Residents are asking that authorities enforce the regulations to control street animals. There are penalties for owners who do not take responsibility for their pets and let them roam the streets causing all sorts of problems, such as spreading trash and leaving their feces and urine everywhere, but the worst is when they attack drivers and pedestrians.

Influenza y dengue están vigilados[+] Ver mas
 Monitoring against influenza and dengue
There have been 35 suspected cases of influenza, of which all were negative, including both H1N1 and AH1N5. There have been 17 confirmed cases of dengue in the township of Isla Mujeres of which 11 were on the mainland, and six on the island. The hospital has tests for influenza, as well as medications for treatment, and they continue giving vaccines to those with risk factors such as being under five or over 60 years of age, pregnant women, and medical staff. In response to a question, the hospital director explained that when a case of dengue is confirmed, a sanitary barrier is applied, ie the Vectors brigade fogs the neighborhood for 40 blocks around the affected home, and does a house by house census seeking anyone with symptoms, as well as eradicating any areas that allow standing water.

Installing buoys to mark the boating area
Instalar boyas para delimitar a las lanchas[+] Ver mas
Isla Mujeres celebrated World Wetlands Day with a celanup at the Hacienda Mundaca and Salina Grande, in which over five tons of waste were removed, especially plastic containers. The event was organized by the municipal Ecology agency, and involved fishing cooperatives, civic associations, and residents, as well as students from different educational institutions. The info about the buoys to protect the whale sharks is in the first article in DQR.
