Sentinels of Baja California

Centinelas de Baja California

The magic of the peninsula lies in its extravagant nature, this space of contrasts between dunes and sea, desert and snowy forest. 

The sentinels of Baja California are all the people who love this peninsula and treasure the memory of the first sunset, the first view of the sea or the first walk through its ancestral paths.

We love Baja California as much as you do.

 Join us today and become a sentinel!

However, climate change and unplanned urban growth is causing the destruction of habitats that are home to unique plants and animals. Right now, protecting these natural areas is a priority for nature and humanity.
