Sea of Support 2018-11-08T10:29:11+00:00


CEDO’s campus in Puerto Peñasco is internationally recognized for being a hub of key research, education, conservation, and sustainable development programs in the northern Gulf of California.

This campus includes a beautiful field station that people have loved visiting since we opened in 1980. In 1999, we becan decorating the inside of our main building, named after the Puerto Peñasco pioneer Augustín Cortez, with an educational Sea of Support: a painted tile mural, funded by visitors, which showcases the biodiversity of the underwater and coastal habitats of this unique eco-region.
