Miracle cave photo takes first prize

A photograph of a limestone cave in the Sierra Gorda has won a first prize in an international photo contest, Naturforo. The picture was taken by Roberto Pedraza Ruiz, Technical Officer of the Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda, WLT's conservation partner in Mexico. Accessing the interior of the cave near the Cañon del Fresno reserve was no easy matter, and Roberto was helped in and out of the cave by Keeper of the Wild Abel Reséndiz. "Just a few humans had been there before, so the cave was still beautiful and untouched," Roberto told WLT. Roberto is an expert photographer who has recently recorded a rare endemic butterwort (Pinguicula martinezii) in the Sierra Gorda.
