On April 6th and 7th, WiLDCOAST continued the Blue on Tour in La Paz, Baja California Sur. WiLDCOAST’s Executive Director Serge Dedina, held a presentation of his new book “Wild Sea” and presented the BlueOCEAN Film Festival to the community of La Paz.

The festival was free to the public, and it featured exciting stories about the ocean and marine life. The films have the dual purpose of entertaining and educating audiences about the threats that the oceans have, and the life inhabits them. The desired result is to inspire the public to act on behalf of conservation, by protecting sea turtles in danger of extinction, coasts, mangroves and reefs threatened by development.

WiLDCOAST also presented the sculpture "The aura of Baja California Sur" made of solid wastes by the artist Francisco Merino. The purpose of presenting this sculpture is to promote reflection on the amount of plastic waste we produce every day.  People of all ages came to watch the films, to hear Dr. Dedina and to see the sculpture.  This Festival would not have been possible without the support of Lucia Frausto and her team who was our hostess at Warehouse Gallery. Many thanks to all those who sponsored the event in the city of La Paz.
