A Towns, Rivers, and Beaches Cleanup Marathon in Bahía de Banderas will be held September 23-29 to contribute to the conservation of the area’s Natural Protected Areas by fighting solid waste contamination. This includes both the Nayarit and Jalisco portions of the bay.
The campaign is headed by the National Commission for Natural Protected Areas (CONANP) under the direction of the Islas Marietas National Park (PNIM) and the Sierra de Vallejo – Río Ameca Natural Resources Protected Area, in coordination with the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and Mita Recicla.
Civil society, local businesses, and Non-Governmental and Governmental Organizations are expected to join in this cleanup marathon, raising awareness about the public health problems caused by solid waste, separating the waste correctly, and promoting recycling.
