Middle school teachers join the strikes
Secundarias se sumaron a paros[+] Ver mas
The  middle school teachers joined the strikes on Wednesday, which now are affecting over 3300 public school students.  Isla Mujeres teachers attended the "megamarcha" on avenue Bonampac in Cancun yesterday. Parents are upset and must find alternatives for their children such as private facilities or babysitters. There are now eight campuses that do not have classes and the teachers union leaders have not said when they will resume working. There are four private schools that are open, who do not depend on the teachers union. HERE/LINK is an explanation in English about the politics behind the protests against recent Educational Reforms. This is a National issue, in response to laws backed by Pres. Nieto, and now passed by Congress.

Dolphin's destiny is uncertain
Incierto destino de delfín[+] Ver mas
PROFEPA had announced its decision on Wednesday about releasing the female dolphin which remains in captivity at the Tortugranja, where it has been observed swimming at high speeds and is said to be fully recovered. There has been no further information, and there are concerns that she could end up as a Dolphin Discovery park attraction. She continues to attract more visitors to the Tortugranja, although the first few days of this week there were few visitors.

Critter events...
It is currently the season for swimming with the whale sharks, and turtles are nesting on the eastern beaches in the wee hours. There are Tortugranja personnelmonitoring 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 are held in the water tanks at the Tortugranja until the hatchlings are released by the public at events at dusk on Media Luna or Guadalupana. These events will occur periodically until early October and may be announced a day or two in advance. They are rescheduled if the sea is rough.
    Lately there have been many rays, in addition to many whale sharks. From MVC, we have been seeing dolphins from the balcony,  and some large fish while snorkeling offshore. Lotsa mama turtles visiting our beach lately! 

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