Mexico and U.S. Partner to Protect 17 Seabird Species
Mexico’s government is teaming up with two U.S. environmental organizations to help protect seabirds near Baja California. The $4 million project is slated to run from 2012 to 2014, and is aimed at saving at least 17 different seabird species facing extinction.
“Decoys, fake bird colonies, mirrors and soundtracks of songs and calls will be used to attract the birds to the islands, with the goal of having individuals return to the sites from which they left and once they recolonize, their offspring will return to the site year after year in a natural way,” said Mexican Environment Secretary Juan Rafael Elvira Quesada.
