In a significant move towards environmental conservation, President Lopez Obrador (AMLO) has announced that the stunning Sierra La Giganta will soon be designated as a Natural Protected area. Stretching for approximately 120 kilometers alongside the mesmerizing Sea of Cortes in Loreto, Comondu, and La Paz, this majestic mountain range holds a special place in the hearts of many residents of Southern Baja state.
At its highest peak reaching 1,668 meters above sea level, the Sierra La Giganta stands as the sixth tallest mountain range in the region. The President’s decision to safeguard this natural treasure aims to preserve its pristine beauty for generations to come. AMLO emphasized that this protective measure is crucial to prevent any potential privatization, which has threatened other mountainous areas and beaches across the nation.
With this forthcoming declaration as a Natural Protected area, the Sierra La Giganta will benefit from increased conservation efforts, ensuring the preservation of its unique ecosystems and biodiversity. The move aligns with the government’s commitment to sustainable development and responsible environmental stewardship, symbolizing a step forward in safeguarding Mexico’s natural heritage. The President’s pledge underscores the significance of protecting such valuable natural wonders, fostering a sense of collective responsibility towards safeguarding our planet’s irreplaceable treasures. As the administration works towards fulfilling this promise before the conclusion of its term in December 2024, the nation looks forward to cherishing and celebrating the beauty and splendor of the Sierra La Giganta for years to come.
