The association is dedicated to raising awareness about conservation and humpback whales through engagement with local communities, and has organized conferences and workshops for local school children.
In addition, the association organized a conference for 17 Central and South American scientists, who discussed how best to coordinate their activities and share methods and knowledge. Also, the association helped organize a beach clean-up at San Juan del Sur Beach, which gathered 80 kg/177 lbs of marine debris.
Commenting on the work, Sea of Change Foundation Executive Director Samantha Whitcraft said:
“We’re thrilled with the progress of this community-based project. This is the kind of work that ties into our mission to create positive change for the natural world we all love to enjoy and explore.”
While Wayne Brown, the foundation’s chairman of the Board of Directors, stated:
“As always, we’re so proud that 100% of the funds donated to our Foundation go directly to worthy conservation projects like this one that can really make difference for both people and ecosystems.”
