WHY IT MATTERS
WILDCOAST is an international conservation organization that conserves coastal and marine ecosystems and wildlife. Through direct land conservation, WILDCOAST has protected over 300 miles of coastline on Mexico's Baja California Peninsula and Sea of Cortez. With the help of thousands of volunteers and partners, the organization has removed 370,340 pounds of trash from US-Mexico border region wetlands and watersheds and has restored hundreds of acres of disturbed habitat.
Over-fishing, ocean acidification and sea level rise have put our ocean's in a perilous state and these threats are compounded by the hundreds of millions of pounds of trash that enter the ocean's every year. With your help, thousands of pounds of ocean-bound trash will be removed from regional wetlands and watersheds, protecting some of the world's most critical coastal ecosystems, fisheries, endangered birds and whales and other wildlife.
