The Society was asked by the Government of Mexico (SEMARNAT and International Affairs) to review an impact statement on a proposed dredging project for phosphatic black sands off the Pacific coast of Baja. We accepted this request and referred the review to the Chairs of our Committee of Scientific Advisers (Doug Wartzok) and Conservation Committee (Barb Taylor). They appointed reviewers with appropriate knowledge and coordinated a consensus report from the SMM. Read our consensus report here.
