He also explained that they have observed a large number of migratory birds, rodents and snakes. He said that this shows how human activity influence the life style of all animal species.
“We are very happy. This is a very clear sign that the planet can recover, if we can have a broader commitment and if there is a dynamic of public policies to guarantee a balance for all of us who inhabit the earth, ”he said.
Mario Hernández said that they have seen a lower flow of people in San Miguel de Allende, but a large number of people live their normal lives. Many children on the street playing and families moving from one place to another.
El Charco del Ingenio is an area designated for conservation and preservation, appointed by the National Commission for Protected Natural Areas and listed by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat).
