Last November Patricio joined a diverse group of scientists and photographers in one of the most remote and unexplored marine ecosystems in the Mexican Pacific. The Islas Marias Archipelago has been strictly regulated since 1905 when the Mexican government established a penal colony on María Madre, the largest island. More recently the National Commission for Protected Natural Areas (CONANP) declared the four islands and their surrounding waters a National Protected Area.

The leaders of the expedition, Dr. Exequiel Ezcurra and Dr. Octavio Aburto, wanted to gather more information about this pristine marine ecosystem and invited several researchers from Mexican and U.S. universities. Patricio was invited to coordinate the photographic documentation by the land-based team, which included two Spanish photographers: Francisco Márquez and Jaime Rojo.

The expedition was possible thanks to the partnership between Mexico's National Institute of Ecology and UC San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography, as well as the necessary permits issued by Mexico's Ministry of Public Safety.

Last November a close friend of Patricio’s, acclaimed nature photographer Francisco Márquez, invited him to give a talk on his work to young students at the renowned Talavera art school in Talavera de la Reina, Spain. He gave the presentation after two weeks photographing Spanish wild ibex with Francisco.


For the second time, Fuji de México has used Patricio's photos for its annual calendars. In 2010 Fuji was one of the sponsors of the expedition to Brazil's El Pantanal to capture the emblematic jaguar and the lush environment in which it lives, images that you can see in this year's calendars.

This is not the first time Fuji de México has supported a communication campaign to promote conservation of the world's biodiversity. In 2009 Fuji sponsored four major photo exhibits at the 9th World Wilderness Congress in Mérida, Yucatán. Prior to that, it also partnered with Sierra Madre to publish the Spanish edition of Art Wolfe's book Libres y salvajes (The Living Wild).

Fuji's corporate commitment to the environment sets a solid example for other businesses of how a company can help change the public's interest in preserving our natural heritage.
