Francisco “Pachico” Mayoral was a longtime friend to me and my wife Emily and to generations of scientists and conservationists in Laguna San Ignacio who passed away recently. For me personally he will always be the “Profesor de la Laguna.” Emily and I met Pachico and his wife Carmen at their lovely house on the shoreline of Laguna San Ignacio on our first day in the field there when we arrived in October 1993 to carry out our dissertation research on gray whale conservation and fishing and ecotourism.
