We envision a relationship of ecological awareness betweenthe people and the sea; where human hearts are rewilded generating a common future for all forms of life to thrive.
We seek to create and implement effective conservation strategies that protect and restore the ocean and our connectedness to it.
This project aims to explore, protect and restore one of the last pristine marine ecosystems on earth: the kelp forest along the coastlines of the Argentine Patagonian Sea, which includes the provinces of Tierra del Fuego, Santa Cruz, and Chubut. Through localized science and community stewardship, we will create or expand marine protected areas and generate effective rewilding strategies to restore the ecosystem and ensure long-term protection. This project is part of Forest of the Sea, an international legacy project to protect kelp forest ecosystems around the globe.
We are promoting the creation of a coastal and marine provincial park that comprises 300.000 ha of land and 200.000 ha of sea. The creation of this marine protected area will mean culminating a 30-year effort to protect one of the most pristine places in the world. This vast territory in Tierra del Fuego province contains the country’s most significant carbon sink. It is home to half of Argentina's kelp forests and it´s the last refuge for the Southern river otter (Lontra provocax), a species on the brink of extinction.
Inspired by the abolition of open-net salmon farms in Argentina we created a global coalition formed by more than 62 organizations, civil groups, and activists from 13 different countries, united with one same vision: oceans free from open-net salmon farms. It is an action-driven alliance working to support local activism and policy change. To do so we leverage and boost grassroots actions, share information and assets among members, and drive global campaigns that can bring a halt to the expansion and remove salmon feedlots from the ocean globally.
