World Wetlands Day 2003: Mexico


Nancy DeRosa ( of Villas De Rosa / Aquatech Dive Center, Aventuras Akumal, in Yucatan province, writes: "Hey there, how are you doing? I just read your post again and would like to send you a few photos of February 2 here on our coastline. We did not have time to clean the beaches (have done this recently anyway)...but we did go snorkeling, out in the bay right in front of our resort and SAVE offices. You can see that we still have a thriving reef system and would love to keep it!!" (,
