Rosa María Cajiga Morales received a grant for “Fauna Post.” The purpose is to spread knowledge about the protection of wild animals, particularly the laws and governmental mechanisms that exist in Mexico to protect them. She writes:

From what I perceived as a Mexican and as an animal lawyer, there is a disconnection between people and animals, particularly wild animals. Some people in Mexico still think like in ancient times when people and animals needed to fight each other to survive. This divided cosmovision of the world where animals are in a different sphere, “separated” from us humans, provides us with a good argument to reconnect people with animals for our own protection and survival, because we cannot survive without nature and nature cannot thrive without its animals.
