El Hijo Del Santo is an icon of Mexican wrestling, and now, he says, the time has come for his character, Santo, to act. He is calling on all icons, artists, and role models of the world to unite and become leaders for a sustainable future. As the spokesperson for the non-profit organization WiLDCOAST, Santo is building grassroots support that spans across the Latino USA, Mexico and Latin America. One of the projects he is most passionate about is to save sea turtles, as well as  cleaning-up of the Tijuana River Valley, between Mexico and the US, from waste and toxic pollution. The project demonstrates the pressing need for all nations to work together to find a solution for our global environmental challenges.

Santo’s commitment teaches us an important environmental lesson. Nature is not aware of geographic boundaries. We all inhabit one single planet, and we all have the responsibility to take care of it.

 

El Hijo del Santo ("The Son of the Saint") still fights and has wrestled all over the world and defeated an impressive number of wrestlers with 62 recorded victories.

THANK YOU SANTO!
