Mexico advances effort to save whale nursery

The Mexican government announces plans to devote 109,000 acres of federal lands next to the San Ignacio Lagoon to conservation. Once formalized, this proposal would deter any future attempts to revive Mitsubishi’s plans to build the world’s largest industrial salt-producing factory on these same lands, a proposal that BioGems Defenders helped defeat in 2000.
