Our Work

Our goal is to guarantee the long-term protection of natural areas, and to achieve it we follow a conservation strategy that includes legal protection, adaptive management and ongoing work with communities.

As part of our work, in the natural protected areas we develop and implement management actions, land, marine and bird conservation projects, as well as receiving visitors, promoting the Leave No Trace philosophy, and creating educational experiences and outreach projects.

Projects

Protection and management

We protect and manage nature reserves that are certified as Areas Destined for Conservation. Also, we have collaborated with the government to certify natural areas.

  • The nature reserves are open to the public, and we welcome visitors all year round.

Projects in the Sierra de San Pedro Martir, Valle Tranquilo and San Quintin. In 2018 we rediscovered the San Quintin kangaroo rat, a species thought to be extinct for over 30 years.

  • Monitoring of mammals.
  • Restoration of habitats.
  • Prevention of wildfires.
