We will expand CEDO’s vision and mission through information and capacity building to disseminate regional biocultural knowledge, generate information through citizen science, and provide environmentally and culturally responsible hands-on experiences in nature.
CEDO’s Environmental Resources Center has been offering natural history talks about the region to residents and visitors for 40 years.
Historically, CEDO’s Campus has also hosted groups of national and international students who enjoy various academic programs.
To fulfill our guests increased need for tourist activities, and our local partners’ need to diversify their productive activities, CEDO Intercultural created NaturArte by CEDO, a brand that integrates our community ecotourism businesses.
For 40 years, CEDO has received thousands of students, researchers, and other organized national and international groups at its field statio to support the advancement of its knowledge and research projects on the northern Gulf of California and the Sonoran Desert.
CEDO offers a portfolio of educational services focused on theoretical-practical knowledge and on the region’s ecosystems and the management and conservation of species.
NaturArte by CEDO is a unifying brand of community tourism businesses that has promoted local economic development based on sustainability models since 2007.
NaturArte by CEDO integrates 11 ecotourism, scientific tourism, and nature tourism experiences for all ages, and promotes consulting and training for its community partners.
We will strengthen communities in the Northern Gulf of California with the tools and practices that best enable them to identify problems and self-manage appropriate solutions for the common good.
We will consolidate voluntary citizen networks, trained and certified to monitor biodiversity, and to collaborate in restoring landscapes and protect priority species in the North and Upper Gulf of California.
We will promote and advise the regional and national fisheries sector, so that a third of the annual regional productions of commercial fisheries are produced and marketed following the fisheries improvement project and social responsibility and fair-trade certification models.
We will promote and implement updated environmental education and School of the Sea curricula, professional and specialized courses, and competency certifications with children, youth, producers, local professionals, and tourists, and share lessons learned to scale the impact.
