We are so grateful to Mark and the entire KEEN team for renewing our KEEN Effect Youth Grant! Our Ecology Education Program is built around helping kids and families to engage with and appreciate their natural environment by connecting them with local experts and resources. That may seem like a simple idea, but according to our biologist, Alejandro Peña, we may be the only sea turtle sanctuary on the Pacific Coast of Mexico that is actively welcoming youth to learn about and join in their work. The guys at KEEN are all about sustainable outdoor education, and after visiting Careyes last April and seeing our program in action, they have decided to continue to provide funding for these activities. Together, we will teach local children about nature through hands-on learning experiences, fostering a new generation of environmental stewards. Thank you, KEEN!
