"We are WILDCOAST" is a 2 minute peak into the world of North America’s most dynamic ocean conservation group. With a passionate and dedicated team of ocean conservationists they speak for the ocean when it is in need of a voice. The programs they manage make a difference in a measurable way. They are the real deal, busting their asses and making noise when needed or working the press conferences and lobbying politicians in the US and Mexico. 
My introduction to WiLDCOAST came via their "clean water now" campaign in the South Bay of San Diego in 2006. They are an essential organization doing great things up and down the Pacific Coast of the USA and Mexico.
