Our work

Strategy

Our conservation strategy includes legal protection, adaptive management and ongoing work with communities

We identify priority sites of great natural importance and apply the most appropriate management models to guarantee the long-term conservation of these areas.

We carry out conservation activities such as biological monitoring, surveillance programs, attention to visitors in nature reserves, infrastructure maintenance and restoration actions.

We promote the active participation of civil society and local communities in conservation activities through community participation.

Projects

We develop land conservation projects in the Sierra San Pedro Martir, San Quintin and El Rosario, marine projects in San Quintin, beach cleanups, bird conservation projects in Ensenada, environmental ethics outreach projects

Land conservation

Projects in the Sierra de San Pedro Martir, Valle Tranquilo and San Quintin, such as monitoring of mammals in the nature reserves, restoration of habitats, reforestation and control of forest fires, among others. In 2018 we rediscovered the San Quintin kangaroo rat, a species thought to be extinct for over 30 years.

Our contribution to the global agenda

In 2015, the UN created the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the vision of protecting the planet, ending poverty, and ensuring that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. These goals have been adopted by 193 countries and define the necessary actions to achieve the universal principles of sustainability.

Of the 17 SDGs in the 2030 Agenda, we have committed to guiding our efforts by following the following:

Take urgent action to combat climate change.

Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources.

Manage forests sustainably, fight desertification, stop and reverse land degradation, stop the loss of biodiversity.

Participate in the World Alliance for Sustainable Development.
