Entry Description

Bacalar is a very special Lagoon located in the southern tip of Quintana Roo, México. It is a natural treasure that has remain fairly untouched until recently. Tourism is growing in the area and with this problems start to grow. There is no sewage system in the lagoon, so until today all the human wastes are poured directly into it, so contamination levels are rising. This images where taken with the intention to rase awareness of this critical problem so measures can be taken to prevent another ecological disaster.
