And where does this path take us?

  • We collaborated with the Government of Baja California to certify the San Quintin Nature Reserve.
  • The area of ​​the Valle Tranquilo Nature Reserve will soon increase by 7413 acres dedicated to the conservation of the San Quintin kangaroo rat.
  • In collaboration with different institutions, we participated in the creation of the San Pedro Martir Fund, which will contribute to the protection, conservation and management of the Sierra San Pedro Martir National Park.
  • We recently joined the Red OJA, which will allow us to connect with other organizations in the country and Latin America.
