AbstractThe environment of the city of Mazatlán, Sinaloa, has beenradically altered, to the degree that its natural habitats are being replaced by artificial ones, and its inhabitants are in the least concerned with preserving some of the characteristic elements of this site, whose name means ?place of deer?, and that former comprised estuarine ecosystems, lagoons and beatiful beaches. Many of these resources have disappeared or face the danger of severe alterations resulting from the nature of community activities or ?externalities? centered in obtaining short term profits, there being no culture for guaranteeing the preservation of natural resources to be managed in a sustained long term fashion, favoring the balance of natural cycles and satisfying the needs of future generations.
