Alejandro Gonzalez from the National Commission on Protected Areas (CONANP), Mexico on his solution
Alejandro Gonzalez from the National Commission on Protected Areas (CONANP) Mexico on his solution “Tourism as a driver for change”, which addresses the problem of destructive recreational activities in Cabo Pulmo National Park. A Public Use and Recreation Program (PURP) provides guidelines to local tour operators to reduce negative impacts of tourism activities on the Parks’ habitats and ensures their economic sustainability. As a result limits on water sports practiced in the Park have been set, which dramatically reduces the impacts on the reefs resulting from these activities.
