We have a Mexican Theme for Ocean Talk Friday today in celebration of my trip to Mexico this week.
Edd Hind-Ozan and I are back again to discuss 3 articles/topics that interested us this week that were related to Mexico. Why Mexico? Well, I’m vacationing there with my family and I wanted to know more about their ocean policies, issues, and projects.
We discuss the following articles:
1) Mexico pledges to increase number and area of MPAs;
2) The problem with Swim-with dolphin activities; and,
3) Mexican Underwater Reef Restoration Resorts.

Links Discussed in this episode:
- Mexico’s pledge to establish four new marine protected areas, made at the ongoing UN biodiversity conference in Cancún, Mexico, has boosted efforts to protect the global ocean, further advancing commitments made in the Promise of Sydney at the IUCN World Parks Congress 2014 – Trevor Sandwith, Director of IUCN’s Global Protected Areas Programme, writes for Huffington Post from Cancún.
- The many swim-with captive dolphin attractions around the world are very popular and lucrative for the tourism industry. Although it may seem like a fun and harmless way to spend an afternoon while on vacation, it is far from harmless for the dolphin and could be dangerous to humans.
- Vaquita from a Social Science Perspective (Fishing communities and dealing with changes of fishing species and wages)
- Half adventure park, half marine sanctuary, the Pearl of Dubai will be the first-of-its-kind artificial reef, built to attract diving dollars from tourists, but also to encourage the return of once-abundant species whose populations are flagging.
