Who we are
We are a Mexican land conservation organization dedicated to protect the ecosystems of the peninsula of Baja California.
What we do
We protect natural ecosystems that are home to endangered wildlife through legal protection, adaptive management and continuous work with communities.
To date, we protect 138,086.46 acres of natural areas in Baja California.
Terra Peninsular conserves and protects the natural ecosystems and wildlife of the Baja California peninsula.
The natural resources of the Baja California peninsula are protected and managed for sustainable uses that are compatible with ecological processes.
Terra Peninsular was created in response to a threat of massive habitat loss in San Quintín Bay as a means to counteract the damaging effects and potential total destruction of this bay.
At that time, there was no organization that had the legal feasibility of buying lands for conservation, something similar to what already existed in the United States with The Nature Conservancy.
In Mexico, although there were very strong and good organizations, they did not have the capacity or legal argument in their statues to acquire lands.
For this reason, on April 20, 2001, Terra Peninsular was created as a land conservation organization to protect the ecosystems of the peninsula of Baja California.
We were was founded by a group of conservationists and scientists concerned about protecting and conserving the natural ecosystems and wildlife of the peninsula of Baja California.
