Terra Peninsular has been conserving the natural beauty of Baja California since 2001. The Peninsula’s wilderness is part of the same greater ecosystem that exists in much of California – and with 75% of the historic California hotspots destroyed or degraded, and roughly 30% of Baja California’s residual habitats lost in the last decade alone, growing pressures to develop the Peninsula’s beautiful coastline and uplands threaten the remaining wilderness and ecosystem in this pristine hotspot.

Using conservation science and successful partnerships with national and international nonprofit organizations, the Mexican and US government, and indigenous and local communities, Terra has become one of the most effective land conservation organizations in Baja California. Only long-term alternatives can counter the short-term, cash-out vision of unsustainable development projects. And with the closing of the local Nature Conservancy office in Baja California, the need for strong, local conservation organizations is even more apparent.
