It has been no secret that across the past few years English and American survivalists hosts have made a huge impact. People love watching the likes of Les Stroud and Bear Grylls, and for several different reasons. Some like to see what locale they’ll be surviving in, some like to see the techniques they use when surviving and some just like watching the host eat gross things! The bottom line is, they have been huge hits and almost everyone knows the name of at least one wildlife adventure show.
The Mexican President and tourism committee have decided to take full advantage of this fact. Mexican President Felipe Calderon has decided to star in a PBS television series that explores the jungles, caves, and hidden locations of Mexico. The 30 minutes shows are co-hosted by Peter Greenberg. The President turned adventurer leads Greenberg down 1,000-foot hole, into Golondrinas cavern.
The Governor of the beautiful Yucatan, Felix Canto, has decided to further their avian conservatory efforts by announcing the creation of not one or two, but three new protected area across the peninsula. The total protected area of the bio-reserves stretches across 76,000 square acres of open Yucatan jungle, woodland, and forest.
The separate wildlife reserves are meant to protect different species. The new Yucatan bio-reserve named Chichankanab Lagoon State Reserve, covering 28,000 acres, and its sister bio-reserve, the Bacalar Lagoon Ecological State Park, covering only 12 acres, are both dedicated to preserving water resources on the small island.
The Mexican government is excited to announce the discovery of an ancient Mayan ruler in the Palenque area of southern Mexico. They are as of yet unsure of the ruler’s name, but the tomb was discovered not far from another famous ruler named Pakal.
The discovery of this tomb being so close to another has led Mexican authorities and archeologists to believe that area in which they were found to be could be unrecognized Mayan burial ground. For nearly a decade the people in charge of the Palenque dig have been aware of the tomb below their feet. It hasn’t been until the recently that the Mexican government would agree to examine the area more thoroughly. They have allowed the process to go on due to the threat of imminent cave-ins and the invention of smaller and more agile cameras to fit in the tomb.
