WildAid will support marine conservation efforts on coastal Ecuador in celebration of World Oceans Day 2016.
Under this year’s theme of “healthy oceans, healthy planet,” we will protect humpback whale mating and birthing areas, sea turtle nesting beaches, manta aggregation zones, shark migration routes and coral reef habitats.
WildAid works with park rangers in Ecuador to prevent illegal activities such as shark finning, long-line fishing, and poaching to protect sharks, sea turtles, humpback whales and mantas. We help community leaders and park rangers better monitor critical marine habitat with technology and training, provide community education to encourage conservation and assist fishers to better organize and manage their fishing grounds.
Thanks to a generous matching donation by a WildAid donor, all contributions for WildAid’s marine program for World Oceans Day this year up to $50,000 will be doubled until June 12 and will be used to support direct marine protection for Ecuador’s mantas, sharks, whales and sea turtles.
