WiLDCOAST - YEAR 2001
WiLDCOAST expands its sea turtle conservation program working with fishermen to reduce poaching and to determine the mortality rate in Baja California and the Sea of Cortez. WiLDCOAST holds a press conference in Mexico City with Baja fishermen and Mexico’s Group of 100 (including Homero Aridjis) to denounce the slaughter of sea turtles. This also provides Homero the opportunity to denounce the proposed Nautical Ladder project. WiLDCOAST begins to partner with Pronatura-Noroeste to propose a National Marine Park for Bahía de los Angeles.
