The Special Prosecutor’s Office for Environmental Protection (Profepa) started the national operation Beach in Order Holy Week 2016, that seeks to avoid unlawful environmental incidents in themes such as land use, interventions in protected areas or traffic of protected species.

During the beginning of the operation at Akumal Bay in the state of Quintana Roo, Guillermo Haro Bélchez, head of the Profepa, mentioned that the first thing would be to review the juridic status of the touristic strip in Tulum and Akumal, because it is necessary to regulate hotel activity given that certain areas used by turtles may be affected, or free access to the beach blocked.

The Profepa also informed that, during the period comprised between 2013 and 2016, 1,149 inspections have been carried out in actions concerning forrest protection, environmental impact, marine resources, wildlife and maritime adjacent lands, which has allowed to secure 1,876 wildlife specimens and close down 70 illegal plots of land.

From 2015 until now, the Profepa has reinforced the strategy to combat unlawful acts in 11 municipalities of Quintana Roo, investing 1,5 million pesos in the Temporary Employment Program to reinforce vigilance in risk areas.
