Action Alert: Sign a Petition Supporting the Creation of Baja California’s First State Park


Save the Waves just launched the #SaveSanMiguel campaign to gather support for the permanent protection of one of the last intact watersheds on the Baja peninsula.  By turning the San Miguel watershed into Baja California’s first state park, the quality and quantity of the drinking water for 400 locals will be secured and 58 hectares will be protected from threats such as sand mining, illegal trash dumping and urban development.  The San Miguel is one of six priority projects identified by the World Surfing Reserves, and is believed to be the first wave ever surfed in Mexico.
Save the Saves and the World Surfing Reserve are gathering 10,000 signatures on a petition asking Baja California’s Governor, Francisco ‘Kiko’ Vegath, to protect the San Miguel.  These signatures will demonstrate international and local support for the creation of San Miguel State Park.
Sign the petition today to show your support for San Miguel.
Patagonia Ambassador Kyle Thiermann and Surfing for Change released this film about the San Miguel and the efforts to protect it:

The Conservation Alliance funded Save the Waves with a $35,000 grant in our Summer 2014 funding cycle. This is the second project in Mexico funded by the Alliance since our inception in 1989.
