Advocacy Initiatives

It's time #ForNature.

The most important aspect of conservation science is taking results from the field to the table in international policy settings. Decision makers and management institutions rely on scientists to be an objective voice for nature, and it's our job as scientists and researchers to make sure that our efforts are presented and integrated to formulate the most effective management strategies.

It's time #ForNature

Rights for Nature is an international campaign dedicated to the recognition of legal and constitutional rights for nature. We work in a grassroots manner with local environmentalists, lawyers, biologists and legislators to propose and draft new legislation recognizing these rights. 

We are in the midst of the 6th mass extinction. The time is NOW for nature, while we still have the opportunity to safeguard endangered species and natural ecosystems for generations to come and more importantly for the sake of nature itself. Nature has intrinsic value and deserves to be respected through the seeking of a harmonious balance with humanity and an abandonment of the perspective that nature is simply a resource to be harvested. 

This campaign is so important because it aims to change the direct way in which society interacts with and considers natur.

Urgent Bycatch Reduction Efforts - Ecuador

Collaborating with government agencies in Ecuador to develop urgent bycatch reduction measures

Due to the country's extensive fishing industry, Ecuador is responsible for around 87% of sea turtle fisheries bycatch in the Southeast Pacific. We are collaborating with the Vice Ministry of Fisheries and Production, the National Fisheries Institute and the Subsecretariat of Fisheries Resources to develop a national bycatch reduction program and plan for the next several years.
