The ammonia plant built in Topolobampo, Sinaloa, would bring multi-million dollar profits to businessmen, but in turn puts at risk the Santa Maria-Topolobampo-Ohuira wetland.

Ethos research supported by USAID shows that the ammonia plant built in Topolobampo, Sinaloa, Mexico, would bring risk the Santa Maria-Topolobampo-Ohuira wetland. This wetland is home to more than 100,000 shorebirds (84% of the migratory birds distributed in Mexico), the critical habitat of the bottlenose dolphin, the breeding and feeding grounds of juvenile hawksbill and black turtles, as well as commercially important fish and crustaceans.
