Ecoguerreros Yucatán, alternative tourism to feel nature

When it was established that tourism should have a sustainable vision, the patterns of behavior of service providers and the consumers were modified. For this reason more and more people are searching that their visits contribute to care the natural resources and development of the communities, and the companies promote these standars and offer new experiencies to consumers. 

For example, cooperative social enterprise Ecoguerreros Yucatán was created in 2016 with objective of  contribuite to conserve environment and local culture through offering activities in contact with the nature, in alliance with cooperatives, ejidos and rural organizations. 

Ulyses Huesca Tercero, agricultural engineer and managing director of Ecoguerreros Yucatán, said they don´t offer travel services, they offer experiencies with the nature and the culture.

“We say experiencies the knowledge acquired in the travel. It isn´t a simple trip, it is learning: we talk about conservation, the care of environment, why we prohibit disposables and the handling of garbage that we generate and the benefits to the communities when traveling with us”.

They offer experiences in their camps, expeditions, outdoor sports and courses, seeking that each one of the visitors have a teaching, significant experience, fun and entertainment 

Ulyses Huesca said promote eco-tourism in a place with endangered species is viable for rescue animals as the Pink Flamingo of the Caribbean, the Whale Shark and the Akumal turtles, so "well regulated tourism is an ally for conservation".

For the above mentioned, the places that promotes Ecoguerreros Yucatán must cumply some special features. “The places mustn´t be known, must have a job of caring for the environment, and must be managed by the communities or ejidatarios", said Ulyses Huesca.

Currently, Ecoguerreros Yucatán continues working to offer new experiences and promotions on holidays, on the oficial Facebook page ECOGUERREROS YUCATÁN, and soon on a website, to reach more people in search of alternative tourism.

Mexico and his new book about biodiversity 2018

José Sarukhán explained that “Natural Capital of Mexico” abstract main elements of the four volumes previous with object of contribute in the decision making of politics of the country.

National Commission for Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity (Conabio), March 16, presented the book Synthesis “Natural Capital of Mexico”, which abstract main elements of the four volumes previous but with news data and information. This action to update the previous Synthesis and represent advantage strategic for contribute in the decision making of politics in Mexico about biodiversity. 
Speaking at the presentation of book conference, José Sarukhán Chief Coordinator of Conabio, said Capital Natural has been indicator in the development of knowledge nature of Mexico, of how we have deteriorated it and how we have kept it. “This that we going to show today is just a actualization of the points most main of this study Capital Natural”.
Silvia Singer, managing director of Interactive Museum of Economics, explained the books are especially aimed to decision makers of publics politics but is important that citizens know that yours patterns consumer, waste, use and respect to the nature are essential and all people have to appropriate of them for pressure and have active participation in society.
Enrique Provencio, researcher and profesor at the Faculty of Economics of the UNAM, detailed this publication resume points for make to change toward the sustainability. All need to know more, stop causes of biodiversity loss, use it well in production systems, preserve it and restore it, more culture to participate all and govern well the use and conservation of biodiversity.


This book present updates data as: the increase in the number of known species that are reported in the country. It has information of approximately 21,677 species more than reported it in 2008 (when volume I of Natural Capital was published), which represents an increase of 19.6 percent.
Document that 127 species were loss in the country (74 were endemic), which means that these species have become extinct on the planet: 26 plants, 38 fish, 29 amphibians, 19 birds and 15 mammals.
Also shows that between 50% and 60% of the plant species known in Mexico are endemic, which means that half or more of the country’s flora is not found in anywhere else in the world, so if these species become extinct disappears from the planet.
The loss of natural ecosystems has been severe because more recent estimates indicate that the country conserves only 50% of its coverage of natural vegetation (in primary condition).
In genetic variation in Mexico, the current level of knowledge has increased, where the main advance has been that in recent years has begun to produce genomic information for many Mexican species, mainly for agricultural use.
The rate of expansion of the urban areas at the expense of natural ecosystems in the last two decades has been 3.5% per year, while that rate of expansion of the agricultural frontier is 0.7% for the same period.
Natural Capital also shows the results of mangrove monitoring carried out by Conabio every five years; that the agricultural area has remained relatively constant since 1980, although new areas have been opened for agriculture and the abandonment of degraded lands continues.
