Did you know that we have been working on marine conservation projects since 2017? So far we have focused our efforts in San Quintin Bay, which is considered one of the best conserved wetlands in Baja California.

In 2016, we joined the Waterkeeper Alliance to maintain the bay a healthy ecosystem.

As part of our commitments with the alliance, each year we organize a beach cleanup to raise awareness by showing the effect trash has on marine ecosystems.
