News and Events, Questions and Answers

Toxic Gold Mining Update - Several of the NGOs fighting the proposed open pit gold mines met with the new Governor, Marcos Covarrubias Villaseñor, the secretary of Development Joel Avila Aguilar and the Director of Sustainability. Petitions with more than 33,000 signatures were delivered along with the community wide message of strong opposition to the mining projects. The meeting, which was scheduled to last 30 minutes extended to three hours.

It was a frank and in-depth discussion. The Governor talked about his strong opposition to any project that will damage the ecology and place the water resources of the state at risk. He emphasized that his government will not welcome projects that endanger the well being of the people or jeopardizes the quality of life in Baja California Sur.

The following week we met with members of the new Congress where petitions were also delivered and different members of the opposition front spoke to the Congressional committee to explain why toxic mining projects should not be allowed in Baja California Sur. We requested that the Congress strengthen environmental laws and enact laws that will prevent contaminating industries. We will begin to meet with the Congressional committee on a regular basis and provide the support of the legal defense teams who have been hired to help with the new legislation.

The studies related to the proposed desalination plant in Las Playitas have been completed. Baseline studies have been made of 10 Las Playitas wells and hydrologists and others in the scientific community have made an analysis of the effects of the desalination plant on the local wells, the aquifer and the coastal ecosystems. The mining company"s application for permits to construct the desalination plant have been withdrawn and it has been reported that they have cancelled their drilling contract with the local company that had been hired to do the wells. The mining company announced that they are revising the design of the desalination plant and will re-submit their application for zoning approvals.

Representatives of Jean-Michel Cousteau, the director Ocean"s Futures Society and son of Captain Jacques Cousteau, recently contacted us. Mr. Cousteau is deeply concerned about the damage open pit gold mining might cause to the fragile ecosystems of BCS and the Gulf of California. He has offered to lend his support to our fight and will be holding a press conference to speak out against the mines and help to create international attention. - Elena Moreno, info [-a t-] aguavalemasqueoro.com, www.aguavalemasqueoro.com, 612 145-0050

2 L16 Solar Batteries for Sale - I have 2 lightly used, 415 amp hour Interstate L16 solar batteries for sale. I need a bigger battery bank and as it is never a good idea to add new batteries to used batteries. I want to sell these to a good home and buy new ones. As new batteries like these would sell for $300 to $500 in Mexico, i would like to get $250 each. Could be a perfect deal if you have slightly used L16's and need another set for more storage. These are about a year old and have not been abused. - lobogrande [-a t-] gmail.com, Todos Santos

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)

Let us know if you find or place your pet so we can remove your ad -

Baja Dogs: Please Help Save Eli! - We would like to introduce ELI: She was found standing alone on the road near CIB. Her entire body was covered with Mange. She had so many open sores on her body she hardly had any hair left. Her back, elbows, feet, legs, rear end and tail were totally red and full of sores. Her entire body itched constantly. She had no energy, and had just given up on life.

After a few sessions of mange treatment we could see the difference in her: the itch had subdued, the sores are healing, and her hair has grown back. This girl is a trooper. She is full of love, easy-going and gentle. She has endured so much already, but unfortunately we have recently found out she has heartworm. This disease is from a mosquito bite and will kill her without your help!

Heartworm is treatable, but far too expensive for our refuge to undertake on its own. The treatment will cost $3300 pesos and if we cannot raise the money, she will have to be put to sleep. If you can find it in your heart to make any kind of a donation to help this beautiful young girl, your donation will literally save her life. If you care to help Eli, please mark your donations "ELI" so they go directly to her care. If you would like to see a photo of Eli I would be happy to forward it if you email me. Baja Dogs is a registered Mexican non-profit organization that relies completely on Private donations, as we receive no government funding.
