  6. To give lectures, workshops, and various activities that generate awareness about the great wealth that the community has in its hands and the lack of spaces where biodiversity is protected, implemented with the support and participation of the community, municipal, state, and federal authorities, and the work team.
  7. To implement a signaling campaign in Bahías de Papanoa on the care of its beaches; care, protection and conservation of its wild fauna, as well as solid waste management.
  8. To coordinate and implement workshops on Responsible Whale Watching on the Costa Grande with the nautical service providers of Puerto Vicente Guerrero to obtain certification from SEMARNAT and offer certified services to promote responsible sightings of important resident or migratory species such as the humpback whale, which come to Costa Grande to give birth and reproduce.
