Activities in Whale Sanctuary of El Vizcaino

El Vizcaino Biosphere Reserve in Baja California, Mexico, is focusing on developing locally based ecotourism to address threats to the coastal lagoons, which shelter the gray whale, harbour seal, California sea lion, northern elephant seal and four species of endangered marine turtles. It is also an important cultural site inhabited by rancheros, with the ancient rock paintings of Sierra San Francisco.
