We are proud to announce that this month, WILDCOAST and partners protected, through a direct land purchase, 695 acres and 1.2 miles of coastline on Baja California’s Valle de los Cirios Pacific Coast. With this accomplishment, WILDCOAST has protected a total of 51,490 acres and 36.8 miles of coastline in the region.
For more than 10 years, WILDCOAST has been working with local fishermen, ranchers, and landowners to protect vast coastal wilderness on the Valle de los Cirios Pacific Coast on Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula. The region is home to some of the last wilderness desert coastline of its scale left on the North American continent.
With more than 100 miles of pristine bays, headlands, lagoons and sand dunes, the region harbors one of the world’s largest assemblages of desert flora, globally significant fisheries, critical stops on the Pacific Flyway, and wildlife corridors for desert fox, deer, and coyotes.
The land protected this month has been slated for various mega-development schemes, including a marina that would have destroyed the region’s unique habitat.
Although we have helped establish key areas on this coast as protected areas, we still need your help. Please make a donation today that will allow us to invest in the ongoing stewardship of the region and protect more wilderness along the Baja California Peninsula.
