Tanto en el mar como en la tierra existen lugares ecológicamente valiosos—lugares productivos, de alta biodiversidad, con hábitats críticos para especies vulnerables y que aportan servicios ambientales a la gente. Desafortunadamente, estos lugares frecuentemente son degradados debido al desarrollo humano, la extracción de recursos y la contaminación.
Ubicada en Baja California Sur, La Sociedad de Historia Natural Niparajá se dedica a la conservación de los hábitats, recursos naturales y procesos ecológicos de la región. Niparajá fue fundada hace 30 años por un grupo de la comunidad de La Paz con la meta colectiva de proteger el medio ambiente.

From March 10-13, the biannual Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) National Convening brought together a dedicated (albeit reduced) group of foundation representatives, nonprofit leaders, and community activists to reflect, inspire and share vision and strategies for protecting and advancing the rights of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers in the United States.
Like many of our colleagues in the philanthropic and nonprofit community, we have been monitoring the developments of the novel COVID-19 situation as it evolves.
