Balandra Beach to Open Soon
So said our state governor, Victor Castro, a day after his administration received an oil Skimmer courtesy of the Baja Ferries company and the La Paz Partners Conservancy, an environmental conservation organization, stated that the gorgeous Balandra beach should be open to the public again in about two weeks. Hoooray!
How about mentioning the many volunteers from Mar Libre and the La Paz community in general who have spent many days clearing more than 10 tons of debris from the accident site in the days since ?There is still much to be retrieved and the cleanup continues. None of the volunteers received anything other than the satisfaction that they were trying to help restore not just the beauty that we all can see from the beach or from a boat but also the underwater environment that is still polluted with a carpet of fibre glass.
