Ovillanta pilot project

Ovillanta pilot project - reducing mosquito population in Melaque/Barra

All are invited to this community meeting to learn more about "ovillantas" -- a DIY community-based solution to controlling transmission of mosquito-borne diseases. save the date: Saturday, April 30, 2-5pm at the Casa Ejidal in San Patricio.

Dr. Ulibarri, the lead researcher & inventor of this method for reducing mosquito populations, will be presenting on the "ovillanta" project this coming Saturday, April 30, 2-5pm at the Casa Ejidal in San Patricio.
The presentation will be primarily in Spanish, but Dr. Ulibarri can also answer questions in English. Please spread the word in your neighbourhood -- this is a grassroots, community, DIY type project that will rely on people coordinating with their neighbours to install and maintain traps (mosquito eggs must be removed and destroyed on a regular basis). Come and learn more if you can support the project!

A hole in the Malecon

Malecon or Andador .... this is the ocean walk in West Melaque. This must date back to Hurricane Patricia but that was close to 6 months ago. A couple of dump truck loads could at least remove the danger aspect to this first hole. You can see the ocean under the wall so it's unsupported. Priorities in our area can be quite mysterious.
