To date, WiLDCOAST has conserved more than two million acres of coastal wildlands and wildlife habitat.
In 2011, on the border, we worked with 14 organizations from the U.S. and Mexico, and held cleanup and stewardship activities that brought together 4,229 participants to improve 3.25 acres of habitat and remove 63,476 lbs. of ocean bound trash.
In Baja California Sur, we mobilized communities to address the regions’ most pressing conservation needs by developing a network of WiLDCOAST “chapters” in Punta Abreojos, Bahia Asunción, and Bahia Magdalena. We also carried out an intensive national and international media campaign to protect the sensitive Cabo Pulmo coral reef.
In 2012, we are going to expand our reach throughout California, Baja California, and Oaxaca so we can continue to work with local communities to clean up, restore, and conserve the amazing coastal and marine resources. To read all about our progress in our newsletters, subscribe now.
