WiLDCOAST - YEAR 2009
WiLDCOAST launches a new initiative in partnership with the San Diego Zoological Society to support California condor restoration, education and conservation efforts in Baja California. We expanded our total acreage conserved in Valley of the Cirios to a total of 20,2244 acres of 18 miles of coastline. In order to stop the tidal wave of waste tires along the U.S.-Mexico border, WiLDCOAST helps sponsor SB 167 a bill signed by California Governor Schwarzenegger. WiLDCOAST’s campaign to protect sharks is featured on Mexico’s Televisa network. In recognition of his conservation efforts, Executive Director Serge Dedina receives the San Diego Zoological Society’s Conservation Medal and the “Coastal Hero” Award from the California Coastal Commission.
