As part of the environmental education program “Amar es Educar” (to love is to educate), Dolphin Discovery Isla Mujeres was invited to serve as a “Partner” of the UN, together with the Scouts of the Mexican Caribbean, in the events held worldwide for the World Day of the Environment, which motto was “Stop Plastic Contamination”.
The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) is the spokesperson for the environment within the United Nations system. UNEP acts as a catalyst, promoter, educator and facilitator to promote the rational use and sustainable development of the global environment.
Within the framework of the event, and with the motto “Life of mammals free of plastic”, Dolphin Discovery received more than 50 members of the Scouts of the Mexican Caribbean and Scouts of Mexico in their habitat of Isla Mujeres, where 50 children and teenage scouts from all over the country, became aware of the damage plastic cause to different marine species and learned about the importance of UMA’s (Environmental Management Unit) for the conservation and protection of marine mammals, through an educational tour, where they had the opportunity to interact with dolphins, manatees and sea lions.
Most of the scouts had their first encounter with dolphins and manatees, and they learned about their diet, health, behavior, anatomy and care, becoming ambassadors of the oceans to share the message about the importance of marine wildlife care in their states.
“For Dolphin Discovery it is an honor to join this important event organized by the UN. We are convinced that pollution is a global problem, the amount of waste that ends up in the oceans is increasing and is killing marine fauna, we need to make people aware of the harm that plastics cause to the environment, and we believe that one way to start is with future generations. Therefore, Dolphin Discovery conducts environmental education visits such as these with the Scouts of the Mexican Caribbean and Scouts of Mexico, so that they can know more about sea mammals and learn to take care of them, since one can not care or love what they do not know ” , said Lic. Guadalupe Jiménez. Deputy Director of Human Value of Grupo Dolphin Discovery.
