Cozumel Ecology Students

Island Youth Participate in Ecology Programs

Early Education Key for a Sound EcoSystem. ….


The new Deputy Director of Ecology for Cozumel Sandra Dutton Ruiz, has recently started a environmental education program designed for island school children.   The program, entitled, “Educación Ambiental para Todos,” will be held on the last Friday of each month, and is geared toward teaching Cozumel’s next generation the importance of taking care of the island’s natural resources.


The first workshop, was held in the salon “Espacio de la Cultura de Agua”  in the public park “Las Mariposas, and together with representatives from CAPA, taught the importance and care of clean water.


Additionally, members of the Ecology program created a interactive display – using recycled materials – explaining what happens to items thrown away that reach the sea, or a fresh water cenote – and the damage that can cause to Cozumel’s delicate ecosystem

Parents are urged to get involved, attend the monthly program, volunteer and help educate their children and their children’s peers regarding these and other environmental issues facing the island.

Para lograr un ecosistema sólido, la clave es la educación temprana . . .

La nueva subdirectora de la Dirección de Ecología de Cozumel, Sandra Dutton Ruiz, hace poco instauró un programa de educación en ecología diseñado para los chicos en edad escolar en la Isla. El programa llamado “Educación Ambiental para Todos” se realizará el último viernes de cada mes y está orientado hacia la enseñanza de la siguiente generación de Cozumel en cuanto ala importancia de brindar los cuidados necesarios a los recursos naturales de la Isla.


Además, los miembros del programa de ecología crearon una muestra interactiva, utilizando materiales reciclados, explicando qué sucede a los artículos que se descartan y que llegan al mar o a un cenote de agua dulce, y el daño que pueden causar al delicado ecosistema de Cozumel.


Se exhorta a los padres a participar, a asistir al programa mensual, a servir como voluntarios y apoyar en la educación de sus hijos y de otros jóvenes respecto a éstos y otros temas medioambientales a los que se enfrenta la Isla.
