While working extensively in Loreto COBI is based in La Paz.

Pride Campaign Logo
The Pride Campaign is a collaboration between the Loreto Bay National Park and the international NGO RARE, promoting conservation and sustainable commercial fishing within the park. The Campaign utilizes a variety of methods to educate the local population, including mural painting, puppet shows, a clam mascot, prizes and games, as well as more traditional methods, such as assisting the local fishing cooperatives to obtain fishing permits. It is a grass-roots campaign to assist locals in the management of their resources and forming a vision for responsible fishing within their park.
