Cultural Resources as a Criterion in Coastal Zone Management: The Case of Northwestern Baja California, Mexico

by Miguel Agustín Téllez-Duarte, Universidad Autonoma de Baja, California,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Management in Mexico: the Baja California Experience


It is necessary to begin state legislation in Baja California that serves not as a limit on development, but as a promoting mechanism for archaeological and paleontological rescue and conservation. Rescue should exist for sites with educational potential, and conservation should occur for those sites that justify educational and recreational use. This proposal is used to examine some of archaeological and paleontological sites in the Tijuana-Punta bands tourist corridor. Their consideration can be seen as a criterion in future coastal zone management because they part of our cultural Mexican heritage.
