    The fishing cooperative "Por la Justicia Social" plans to renovate their two cabins on Isla Contoy as soon as possible, as part of their beach cleaning and maintenance program, according to their director Baltazar Gomez Catzin. They have received funding from CONANP, the National Commission for Protected Natural Areas for five GPS devices, and are looking for the best way to fund this project, and applying to CONANP. 
     There is an area on Isla Contoy where there are huts for the fishermen to sleep in during the rainy season and at night when they are in the area hunting for lobster. Many of these cabins are in poor condition and in need of rehabilitation.

From Sally Margolis Hi all!! We (Isla Animals) are gearing up for a HUGE Spay/Neuter, Vaccination, Wellness campaign for the animals in Rancho Viejo Nov 17-22. This is a very poor area in the municipality of Isla Mujeres. Most are living without electricity and running water. The situation for the animals there is dire right now with parvo & distemper running rampant, and heavy overpopulation. We expect to treat/vaccinate/spay/neuter 1000 cats & dogs with the cost of surgery at just $10us per dog. This may be the only time any of these animals see a vet. We can treat the existing animals, vaccinate others against disease, curb the population growth, and educate pet owners on proper animal care and make a HUGE DIFFERENCE!! We have the knowledge, experience, volunteers, and heart to make it happen. We are asking for all of your help to raise funds to make the campaign a reality. (We can also accept Paypal donations via our site - just add RANCHO VIEJO in message, and cash in person on Isla Mujeres. Please, please share the link on your social media. It helps us so much. If you are not in a position to donate PLEASE do read the campaign & share, there is lots of excellent info in it about the work we do-There is always so much to do! Thank you for your time!
