Love our whales? Want to help them?
Please support the Whales of Guerrero project! This nonprofit is helping the Mexican fishing town of Barra de Potosí, near Zihuatenejo, develop a sustainable economy while protecting our humpbacks in their winter home.
There are school programs, safe whale watch captain training, citizen science training, and an amazing mentorship exchange with the famously successful Baja California gray whale watching network of Laguna San Ignacio. Katherina Audley of Portland, Oregon runs this fantastic program on a shoestring of private donations so let’s help keep it going!
