On October 31st, Mayor Kiko Munro along with Ángel Norzagaray, Vice Dean of the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC), inaugurated the museum worthy exhibit “Totoaba: Giant of the Upper Gulf of California”, on exhibit at the Galería de Artes Municipal (GAM) in the Old Port.
“The exhibit,” detailed the UABC Vice Dean, “is being done as the totoaba is a species that is threatened by opportunism and organized crime. The primary goal is to provide awareness as to its history and make people aware of the importance of this species, which is endemic to the Upper Gulf of California.”
At the inaugural event, Dulce María Martínez Barrera from San Felipe, Baja California, read a story she had written entitled “Memories of a Totoaba.”
The Mayor, accompanied by invited guests, led the ribbon cutting ceremony marking the inauguration of the exhibit, which will remain in place from Oct. 31 – Jan 15.
The Galería de Artes Municipal (GAM) is located next to Plaza Colosio in the Old Port. Open daily from
