Inauguration of photographic exposition featuring the biological diversity of Isla Mujeres 
    Commemorating the Day of Environmental Protection (Día de la Protección a la Naturaleza), the City of Isla Mujeres, with the municipal Department of Ecology, inaugurated a photographic exhibition entitled, "Biological Wealth of Isla Mujeres" (Riqueza Biológica de Isla Mujeres).
      The ribbon cutting ceremony was led by Mayor Agapito Magana Sanchez, and attendees included city officials, teachers, students, and the general public. The municipal director of the Ecology Department, Carlos Barranco, said the photo exhibit is part of the ongoing activities related to the Month of Ecology, and in particular to the Day of Environmental Protection, November 18th. The Mayor said the public is invited to admire the pictures of flora and fauna that are typical of our municipality, which are part of our identity, and represent the richness of our natural environment.
     Seventy photographs have been provided by employees of the Ecology Department and other municipal agencies, as well as by students. Currently there are about 40 works on display, and they will be rotated with the rest of the photographs to provide an opportunity for all of them to be admired. The exhibition will be on display at the Casa de Cultura for a week.
    Objectives of the exhibit are to show visitors and the community various examples of plants and animals that are native to the island, while strengthening environmental education among students to identify our native flora and fauna.

Neighbors say fight between brothers caused injuries, not police abuse


Desmienten vecinos abuso de policías

0 21 de noviembre de 2015 
  Neighbors of Marcos Geovanny Cen Reyes say his broken ribs were a result of a beating from his brother, not from police, as was claimed by his mother in a complaint to the Human Rights Commission. Neighbors say his injuries were a result of a fight that occurred at the house of his mother, Gilda Yolanda Reyes Lopez, located in colonial Canotal, because her son Marcos Geovanny was hitting her and one of his brothers hit him so that he would release his mother. Yesterday, it was published that the mother of Marcos Geovanny blamed police for her son's three broken ribs. However, then photographs were presented that that revealed that Marco Geovanny was hitting his mother, so his brother assaulted him.

      Nearly 1500 students participated in the November 20th parade on the island, led by a Naval group, down Rueda Medina avenue, receiving smiles from the many spectators, while commemorating the 105th anniversary of the  Mexican Revolution. They wore uniforms of revolutionaries and dresses of the adelitas, as well as sports uniforms, and there were gymnastics performances and mariachi music. 
    The review stand was presided over by Mayor Agapito Magana Sanches and his wife Marthy Vargas de Magana, head of the DIF, and included Naval and educational officials, as well as members of the City Council. 
       The parade began at 8am and was lead by a Naval troop with a large Mexican flag, followed by youngsters of the the CENDI (daycare) center and children of the various kindergarten-preschools, who delighted the audience with their dances and gymnastic displays. 
        It is noted that not all the groups proceeded to the Monument to the Fishermen down the planned route, and some broke ranks to go to Playa Centro (The Posada Beach), while other groups walked the entire route.

Auxilia la Marina-Armada a crucero noruego [+] Ver mas
   For the second time in less than a month, staff from the Search and Rescue unit (ENSAR) of the Isla Mueres Naval base provided a medical evacuation for a cruise ship. On Thursday at noon,a  report was received of a distress call from the cruise ship "Norwegian Jade", which was located 23.5 nautical miles (43km) northeast of the island, concerning a 73 year old passenger who was having a hypertensive crisis and required transport to a hospital.
       An MLB rescue boat was dispatched, and medical care was given to the US national, who was transported to the Naval Station at Puerto Juarez, where an ambulance was waiting to transfer the patient to a private hospital in Cancun. This was done by the Navy as part of their legal responsibility to safeguard human lives at sea. In recent times this type of assistance has usually been needed two to three times per year.

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!
Coming in December.....
