NRDC helps form the Laguna San Ignacio Conservation Alliance

NRDC joins with local and international partners to form the Laguna San Ignacio Conservation Alliance. The alliance strives to permanently protect the sanctuary by purchasing conservation easements from ejidos (communal land cooperatives) that surround the lagoon, restricting destructive development on those lands, urging the Mexican government to strengthen protections for federal lands in the area and, where necessary, buying some land outright.
