Turtles arriving & ~100 eggs are collected daily  

 Recolectan en promedio 100 huevos diarios desde que inició la presente temporada

ISLA MUJERES, 9 de junio.-
   Since the turtle protection season began on May 15, there have been 2585 eggs collected which are incubating in 26 nests, according to the Director of the Tortugranja, Raciel Rivero Coba. She said so far, only loggerhead turtles have been laying, and they do not yet have any nests from the hawksbills or greens.
       The eggs take about 45-60 days to hatch and are then placed in the holding tanks, to be released in the evenings when they are less likely to be seen by birds, who are natural predators of the young turtles. Although all protective measures are taken, it is said that of 100 hatchlings released, only one survives. The season continues through October 15, and includes surveillance at night of the areas where the turtles traditionally nest.

ISLA MUJERES, 8 de junio.-
   The 'absorption wells' (pozos de absorción),overflow when there is intense rain, which causes complaints from the general public and a bad image for tourism, because it can affect the sewage system & cause water contaminated with sewage to overflow in some areas. The Aguakan company has not been able to solve this problem, which affects some parts of the colonias of Canotal and Meterorologica, as well as some downtown and beach areas. It is said that the problem has worsened downtown outside the Naval base and near the restaurants on Rueda Medina.

Poachers affect lobster production

ISLA MUJERES, 8 de junio.-
     Although there are concerns that poaching of lobster, which apparently prevails on the northern coasts of Quintana Roo, will affect production, fishermen are ready to start the seaon which begins July 1st.  A representative of the Patria & Progreso cooperative, Jaime Osorio Sanchez, said their group is ready, and they have about 100 nets, a similar number of traps, and an adequate number of oxygen tanks for diving on the seabed. Some fishermen are hoping for assistance from the new local and state governments to replace their boat engines, because they are no longer 100 percent reliable due to overuse, which causes a risk of accidents due to mechanical failure at sea.

Court case continues against former Mayor  

Van todavía tras de Cárdenas Bazán m.. [+] Ver masFull article & photo at this link
    The court case involving former Mayor Jorge Cardenas Bazan, which accuses him of theft, has not been resolved, with an appeal pending of court decisions. The case involves the destruction of two palaps on Playa Norte in the Federal Zone, over a year ago. The former Mayor was arrested and released, and a decision is awaited from the court: Sala del Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Cancún. The two decisions of the court:  Juzgado Mixto de Primera Instancia de Isla Mujeres are being contested.
   Lawyer Jose Martin Mejia Alvarez said the court made a determination on the issue of theft, but not on the issue of damages. He said the damages are estimated to be at least 650,000 pesos and the destuction included two palapas, refrigerators, refrigerators, cameras, beach chairs, and umbrellas, among other things. He said the employees were threatened during the invasion.
    It is reacalled that over a year ago, at night, vandals entered the Federal Zone area where a concession is held by Carlos Raúl Cervera Peraza “Chichis”, and they destroyed two palapas and everything inside. The case alleges that they were hired by Vicente de Jesús Celis Sánchez alias “Longplay”, who was acting on instructions from former mayor Jorge Luis Cárdenas Bazán. Three months ago, the former mayor was arrested in the Cancun airport and released two days later. Sr. Celis was arrested a month ago, and also released days later. 
    The Judge released Sr. Cardenas due to lack of evidence to be prosecuted, and Sr. Celis was released due to  “desvanecimiento de datos” (fading/disappearing of facts?). These decisions are being appealed.  Sr Mejia, the lawyer, said the two men are likely to be returned to jail if the judge determines that the complaints are valid.
   The lawyer presented documents to support Mr. Cervera's claim on the 2600 square meters of Federal Zone, showing it was granted to him in 2002 by the Federal Governmental agency SEMARNAT (Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales), as Concesión Marítimo Terrestre número DGZF-448102.
