AVALANCHE ADVENTURES PARTNERS WITH PRESCOTT COLLEGE KINO BAY CENTER TO PROVIDE FUNDING FOR COMCAAC PEOPLE
Sea turtle conservation
Grupo Tortugeuro protects feeding and nesting sea turtles by monitoring, educating and changing collective attitudes and behaviors from exploitation to conservation and
pride (since 2010).
This Comcaac (Seri) youth group is being trained to connect indigenous knowledge with waterbird monitoring techniques in order to promote and communicate the cultural and ecological importance of estuaries in Comcaac territory (since 2014).
Interpretive signage in Estero Laguna La Cruz
Youth groups and networks, working with community members and academic institutions design and install signs to inform and inspire locals about the international importance of the estuary in their backyard (since 2019).
Clean-up initiatives in Estero Laguna La Cruz
Local fishermen who struggle economically during closed fishing seasons participate in clean-ups and see firsthand the impacts of fishing-related trash in the habitat in which they work (since 2020).
The global Covid-19 pandemic has hit hardest in marginalized communities around the world and this is also true in our region. This year the Center strives to fund 15 community projects to relieve economic and ecological pressure and help to restore hope through collective action. We believe effective conservation is a collective action, and we invite you to join us in protecting some of the most bioculturally rich marine and coastal ecosystems in the world.
