WHO IS WILDCOAST:
WILDCOAST’s mission is to conserve coastal and marine ecosystems and wildlife. Since 2000, WILDCOAST has helped to conserve over 31.6 million acres of some of the most ecologically important coastline, wetlands, islands and marine areas in the United States and Mexico.
WHAT WILDCOAST DOES:
Through the establishment and management of protected areas, strengthening conservation policies, and engaging local communities as stewards of local resources and wildlife, WILDCOAST has helped protect more than 8,000 acres of Northwest Mexico's mangrove forests, 55,000 acres of wilderness shoreline on the Baja Peninsula's Pacific coast, and 1,300 miles of shoreline around places like San Ignacio Lagoon, Magdalena Bay, and Oaxaca's sea turtle nesting beaches. Meanwhile, they have engaged more than 5,000 students from park-poor and indigenous communities in San Diego County as community scientists to help monitor more than half of a million acres of marine protected areas in California.
