A TRAVEL GUIDE TO BAJA CALIFORNIA'S FRIENDLY WHALES.

www.netconnection.com/bajawhales.html

Originally created in 1997 by border activist and educator Lori Saldana, the site has been updated several times and is an excellent guide to San Ignacio Lagoon. The guide provides first-rate travel tips as well as a modest photo gallery of some whales as well as Baja's unique terrestrial environment. The links section is a bit outdated--reading as if the project to build a salt plant in San Ignacio is still underway (the project was cancelled last year). Be patient. Saldana reminds readers that the site is managed on a volunteer basis.

Ron Mader is the host of the Planeta.com: Eco Travels in the Americas website (www.planeta.com) and the author of the Mexico: Adventures in Nature guidebook. The Planeta.com whale watching guide debuted this spring and is found an-line at www.planeta.com/ecotravel/resources/whales.html.
