For decades Panterra has invested thousands of dollars in supporting local Mexican conservationists, researchers and post secondary students. In support of their efforts of bringing public awareness and education to saving our ocean’s inhabitants.
In the fall of 2018, Panterra had the honor of signing an agreement with the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California Sur (UABCS) with the goal of designing field research opportunities for their students. The initiative includes building international alliances with other universities for the purpose of developing collaborative research, studies, innovation and technological endeavors.
We are also assisting the remote communities we work with in setting up ongoing research and conservation programs where members of the community actually work alongside the scientists or are carrying on the monitoring and conservation.
Whether it is studying flora, fauna and geology of the islands, at sea studying a variety of marine life or setting up oceanographic monitoring stations, our goal is to bring local communities and the scientific community together. An amazing template for conservation and research programs.
Our current programs include working with whale sharks and sea turtles and we look forward to our continued support of developing programs for other terrestrial and marine life species. In 2020 our first initiative was designed only to be postponed until 2022 due to COVID. It has given us the opportunity to further develop the initiative.
We can all make a difference through education, public awareness and action. Conservation efforts are needed more than ever as our climatic world is changing around us.
“Never apologize for being over sensitive and emotional when defending the welfare of wildlife. Let this be a sign that you have a big heart and aren’t afraid to show your true feelings. These emotions give you the strength to fight for what is right and to be the voice of those who cannot be heard.”
