“I am very concerned about the threat of destruction of our Punta Conejo….we love this place with all our hearts.”
In an ecological disaster, on Sunday, October 23, fishermen, surfers, and conservation groups denounced the presence of oil and hydrocarbons on different beaches near the Port of Salina Cruz, Oaxaca.
Last year, we launched the Salvemos Punta Conejo campaign and have been working diligently ever since. We know that once a natural phenomenon like Punta Conejo is altered by industry, it is forever lost. We won’t let this gem go down without a fight.
#SalvemosPuntaConejo Campaign Update: At the invitation of the local community, Save The Waves headed to southern Mexico to the village of Playa Brasil to listen, learn and collaborate with local community members to protect Punta Conejo.
The campaign to protect the famous right-hand point break in Oaxaca, Mexico continues to gain ground and build opposition to a project that could destroy this beloved surf ecosystem. In just a couple of months, the petition started by Save The Waves has amassed over 250,000 opposition signatures.
Punta Conejo, a renowned surf break along the coastline of Southern Oaxaca, could be destroyed by the construction of a new industrial port project. The Mexican Federal Government has announced the “Development Plan for the Isthmus of Tehuantepec”, which includes the development of a new industrial port in Salina Cruz, Oaxaca.
