The Earth Needs Us

The Earth Needs Us

April 22nd is Earth Day under the motto: “Investing in our planet”, where awareness is raised about environmental changes and the conservation of biodiversity in the face of climate change, among other things.

Also, the need to make a change towards a sustainable economy which benefits people as well as the planet through practices that promote the conservation of our natural resources and the reduction of environmental impact.

At Quivira Los Cabos, environmental conscience and the commitment to taking care of the environment is essential. Sustainability is one of our core values, as it allows us to support local development, reinvest in the community and minimize the environmental impact that our activities can cause.

Our sustainable practices for the planet

At Quivira Los Cabos, Earth is our paradise and the 100% natural environment that our property has is our everyday motivation and drive. Our community is interested in investing in our planet to guarantee a better future.

These are some of the actions that Quivira carries out to care for the environment:

Turtle Protection and Release Program.
For 20 years, we have protected several species of endangered sea turtles. Each season, they migrate to the beaches in the area to nest and ensure the survival of their offspring. We have protocols in place to prevent human intervention during nesting time, in addition to promoting environmental education for their conservation. Both guests and residents can participate in this activity. 

PET and aluminum recycling programs.
At Quivira Beach Club, our staff, along with residents, gather the material in a specially designated area. Additionally, other programs have been developed to educate on waste separation and the safe handling of hazardous materials and chemical wastes. 

Whale monitoring.
From December to March, whales start migrating to  the warm waters of the Baja California Peninsula, in search of a safe place to give birth. Although the gray whale is the most sighted species, there are many others such as the humpback whale, the sperm whale and the blue whale. The conservation of these species is crucial to Quivira, which is why measures to protect them are taken, promoting responsible sightings, and educating visitors about the importance of caring for the environment.

Quivira Golf Club not only has a privileged location; it was designed to integrate with nature.
It uses paspalum, a type of grass resistant to salinity and diseases, which requires fewer chemicals and pesticides, making its operation sustainable as it also has an efficient irrigation system and high technology for soil conservation.

Flora and fauna protection:
Quivira has plants and animals specific to the region. From a variety of cacti to myrobolan plum trees and elephant trees can be found here. As for birds, this place is home to species such as cardinals, mockingbirds, falcons, roadrunners, eagles, owls, and woodpeckers, among others, as well as squirrels, deer, red foxes, coyotes, hares, rattlesnakes, and lizards.

Desalination plants that convert sea water into drinking water for human consumption and two waste water treatment plants that process waste water from hotels, residential developments, among others.

These actions are, today, our grain of sand but we will be integrating more and adding hands to this beautiful endeavor of preserving the planet.
