Welcome to Boomerang For Earth Conservation! 

Boomerang for Earth Conservation (BEC) is a French non-profit organization founded in 2010. The term "Boomerang" refers to an Australian Aboriginal tool that, after being thrown, travels in an elliptical path and returns to its point of origin. The verb "to boomerang", derived from this Aboriginal tool, means an action that returns unexpectedly to its originator. Quoting Newton, this is like saying that “To all action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Applied to mankind and Earth conservation, this means that if we treat the Earth well, the Earth will nourish and sustain us in turn.

     When you are a conservationist, you quickly learn that species are ‘Endangered’ when they are under threat of disappearing if we don’t do something to prevent it (e.g. overfishing, destruction of habitats, pollution, etc), but what do fishermen think when we talk about endangered species?
