es Parte de Ti
(Espiritu Santo Is Part of You)
“Espíritu Santo es Parte de Ti” is a local, grassroots campaign to restore the depleted reefs and reef fish in Espiritu Santo National Park by creating community pride and advocacy, promoting good practices and eliminating illegal fishing in the park. Their goal is for:
- Citizens of La Paz to take pride in Espiritu Santo National Park and help protect it by supporting citizen driven vigilance.
- Fishermen, tour operators and visitors to be aware of the rules and regulations of the park and report illegal fishing.
- Restaurants, markets and citizens of La Paz to promote responsible consumption of fish, avoiding species important to the ecosystem health of Archipelago Espiritu Santo such as reef critical parrotfish and surgeon fish.
It is not illegal to consume, sell or buy parrotfish sold at markets and restaurants, but they are nearly always killed by illegal fishing methods.
Each participating restaurant will have the brochure you see on this page on every table.
Major supermarkets in La Paz (including Chedraui and Walmart) have committed to stop selling parrotfish in their La Paz stores and many restaurants in La Paz have committed to stop serving parrotfish.
