New animal protection council for Tulum

Tulum, Q.R. — Tulum city council has created the Municipal Citizen Council for Animal Care and Animal Welfare, a council that will see to the care and protection of animals.

Tulum City Council members along with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s), carried out the reinstatement of the Municipal Citizen Council for Animal Care and Animal Welfare to ensure the rights of all animals.

On behalf of Romi Dzul Caamal municipal president, Lenny Perez Salazar said that “These coordinated bodies invite citizen participation to help guarantee the rights of animals in Quintana Roo.”

In accordance with the Regulation of Protection and Animal Welfare of Tulum, the Advisory Council was created which will not only ensure animal protection, but also ensure the health of the community that could be affected by sick animals.

The newly assembled council will cover all wildlife protection including endangered animals as well as domesticated, abandoned, mistreated and those used for exhibition purposes.

The Law for Protection and Animal Welfare of the State of Quintana Roo was created in 2013.

“This law is very clear. Protect animals, ensure their welfare, provide care, good treatment, support, avoid abuse and suffering. In compliance with the provisions of this law, the Advisory Councils were created.”
