Ocean Revolution
An international program developed to connect, inspire and empower a new wave of young leaders to find creative solutions to protect our oceans. Oceans offer us unmatched beauty, abundance, diversity, and recreation. They are among our planet’s most precious resources. However, recent studies couldn’t be clearer: our oceans and the life within must be protected immediately. To find out more and join the revolution, visit:

Conceived from a master's thesis by two visionary students, at UCSD's Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, Pro Peninsula began offering support to organizations throughout the peninsula in September 2001. Since then, Pro Peninsula has matured into one of the leading conservation organizations working on the Baja California peninsula, having implemented and engaged in a range of projects throughout the region. Pro Peninsula, established as a 501c3 organization, is lead by a dedicated board with expertise in science, conservation and advocacy, employs staff members in both the U.S. and Mexico experienced in international environmental policy, non-profit management, science, and grassroots conservation and is supported by an active and dedicated membership. Pro Peninsula is dedicated to empowering communities and organizations on the Baja California peninsula to protect and preserve their environment.

Grupo Tortuguero

Five species of sea turtle inhabit the Eastern Pacific; all are endangered (IUCN Red List, 2000) and four are ecologically extinct. Sea turtle mortality is occurring with direct take by poachers who sell turtle meat and eggs on the black market and by incidental capture in fishing nets, trawls, and on loglines. While publications on sea turtle ecology, health and genetics are expanding, few on-the-ground projects are addressing the main threats to turtle survival. The Grupo Tortuguero was formed in 1999 to fill this void and recover Eastern Pacific sea turtle populations. The Grupo Tortuguero is a network of individuals, communities, organizations, and institutions from around the world dedicated to sea turtle conservation. We envision sea turtles fulfilling their ecological roles on a healthy planet where all people value and celebrate their continued survival. We empower people and their communities to conserve sea turtles, inspiring a revolution in our relationship with the ocean. We accomplish this by building a diverse conservation network to expand knowledge, develop innovative solutions and share them widely.To find out more, visit:
