Marmex is an informal organization made up of people who are interested in the Ocean Conservation issues of Bahia de Banderas. Those of use that enjoy, use and benefit from our Bay will benefit from being a part of Marmex. We hope you will join our efforts.

As the population of Bahia de Banderas grows, those of us that spend a lot of time on the water see the impact it is causing to our bay and the surrounding ocean. Unfortunatly there is little or no coordination of projects to help preserve Bahia de Banderas. The government programs are underfunded and slow at producing results. It is a fact that community support is the only real and effective way to create lasting positive change to ocean management (put links to Large Recover and Paper Park). Marmex hopes that you will be part of this community support.

At this time Marmex is an informal organization of people with an interest in conserving the waters of Bahia de Banderas. If you would like to be a part of this organization and receive information about our projects and events, or how you can become involved, please let us know. If you have a question about Ocean Conservation issues of Bahia de Banderas we would be happy to assist you in getting your questions answered.
