Boomerang for Earth Conservation (BEC) was born in 2010 inspired by the words of Chief Seattle (1855):
"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect."
At BEC, we believe that promoting conservation of the natural environment goes through research and science-based, concrete, proactive, and cooperative interventions. We provide artistic, outdoor and practical educational experiences. We support the metaphoric and actual immersion in the natural world, with its local cultures and peoples. All things connect, and so we strive to conserve nature, to also conserve ourselves.
We focus on engaging the local communities in the protection of their natural resources. We target the youth and work on (re)connecting youngsters with natural ecosystems and species. We work with inspiring Mexican communities on the sea turtle monitoring in Laguna San Ignacio, and with Egyptian communities to conserve the incredible and diverse marine biodiversity of the region. More has been done, and more needs to be done. A change in the way we relate to nature is needed, the time for change is now, and we can all contribute to it with small actions.
If you share our vision and are willing to support our projects, please consider becoming a member of BEC this year.
