Reviews for Intercultural Center For The Study Of Deserts And Oceans Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Working with and for "CEDO Intercultural" is a joy and an honor. for 35 years, the founders (Rick & Peggy Boyer) have focused on collaborative, cooperative, inclusive conservation of the Northern Sea of Cortez, and their work is making a difference. Continuously gathering scientific data, CEDO is able to guide fishermen and regulating agencies to make informed decisions for sustainable fishing and natural resource management. I applaud the work of CEDO, making my world healthier and more beautiful for generations to come.
