PROFEPA officials stated that the objective of their first season in Laguna San Ignacio was to observe whale-watching activities and interview all parties involved in the industry so that management guidelines and suggestions based on field observations could be presented to INE staff (Jimenez L. 1994; Nieves 1994).
Because INE is responsible for regulating whale tourism in Baja California Sur, it is the lead government agency in issues related to the conservation of gray whales and their habitat in Bahia Magdalena.

The military campaign carried out in Baja California during the first half of 1911 by groups of rebels under the direction of Ricardo Flores Magon and the Partido Liberal Mexicano represents one of the most curious and controversial episodes of the Mexican Revolution.
Not only was Baja California close to the PLM headquarters and destined to form its principal theater of operations, but the general excitement produced in Mexico and the U.S. border region by the outbreak of the 1910 insurrection resulted in a greater interest among Mexicans in the Liberals' activities and their journal Regeneracion.
Once the Baja California campaign got under way with the capture of Mexicali on January 29, 1911, the PLM was able to avail itself of additional sources of income.

 IMPUNITY: Cases (previous investigations)-Héctor Félix Miranda   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
MEXICO CITY, Mexico (August 7, 2003)—Judges of the Third Circuit Criminal Court upheld a petition by attorneys representing gunman José Antonio Vera Palestina, confessed killer of journalist Héctor Félix Miranda, for reconsideration of a refusal by another court of a request that he be returned to a prison in Baja California state.
Vera Palestina is seeking reversal of a ruling by Guadalajara District Judge Fernando Alcázar Martínez denying him the protection of federal justice on the grounds that his transfer from the prison in Mexicali in 1995 did not violate his constitutional rights.
Vera Palestina, sentenced to 25 years’ imprisonment on May 1, 1990, for the murder of the journalist, does not resign himself to remaining in the maximum security prison and previously, as ZETA reported, he has sought from the Baja California state authorities the benefit of future release.
