Apologies if this ignited an argument, that wasn't the intention at all. The claims we make toward the end of our Isla Raza episode aren't meant to be divisive or controversial, they represent the general scientific consensus surrounding the issue.

Observations in the Gulf suggest that anthropogenic climate change is at least partially responsible for the disruption of the sensitive ecosystem found on Isla Raza. We're doing our best to approach the situation scientifically, just like Nelson and Goldman did over 100 years ago. No conscious political motives on our part.

Sorry to open any old wounds!

Subjectruin, I am sorry for the way this post is about to go. Some of us have special causes that set us off. The world getting warmer or colder is one of DK's. He denies it and about 10 folks buying it. Welcome to the board/ sandbox, there will sand flying soon, Sorry!


lol..whats that got to do with making T-shirts! you know they ARE requesting contributions, starting at 10 bucks.
I think I made a mistake here:(

A T-shirt with color logo would be super cool, although I understand many colors = many dollars. What bajaguy said - small on front, large on back.

It makes little sense to me. Why is hwy 1 the "devil's road?" It seems like a pretty pleasant hwy to me: Great country, beautiful scenery, great places to visit.

A summer trip on the highway 110 years ago was probably a bit 'Hellish'!

That is what this thread is about, retracing some of that route.

La Bocana, BCS did not even exist! Abreojos did, probably due to ships and danger of getting grounded???

What a wonderful project. On your way down, stop by and I will make you lunch. We are 1.5 hours south of Asuncion and 30 min. north of Abreojos.

I am going to forward the link to friends to see if I can drum up some financial support.

Awesome, I'll definitely make another post once we get some T-shirts made up, glad you guys are into them.

BajaBlanca - Thanks so much for the offer! I believe our route takes us right through Abreojos, so maybe we'll see you during our March-April 2017 main expedition.

The Devil'sRoad Episode 2: Isla San Martin





We just released Episode 2 of this project, this time focusing on Isla San Martin. You can watch it here.

Also, last time I posted there was some interest in T-shirts. We now have a store set up on our website with some cool designs, check it out!

Your 2nd episode very briefly mentioned the changes since 1905. I think you are missing the boat with isla San Martin. The changes in sea life since 1905 are extreme. Bivalves in the area were severely overfished for decades, until they original stock are all but gone. The relentless commercial fishing has totally changed the fish stock. There is extensive literature on this. The story of the shore is the story underwater. The barren area above water has not changed much since 1905. Perhaps the bird life has been effected,... but the story of change lies below the sea, where the majority of biomass resides in Baja.

You're certainly right about the underwater world, but the focus of our documentary is on retracing the steps of two scientists who traveled there in 1905. Their work was primarily about the plants and land animals of the mainland peninsula, and only traveled to a handful of islands. They specifically called out a few species on San Martin, so our film focuses on those.

That said, depletion of fish stock and other issues relating to marine life in Baja are extremely important, and we will definitely touch on those at other points in our documentary. For example, in our upcoming episode about Isla Magdalena, we touch on the history of sea turtle and shark fishing in Bahia Magdalena.
