From WildCoast to WildCoast: we talk to Serge Dedina and Matt Costa about the conservation of coastal and marine ecosystems from the Coast of California to Mexico and more


This week we had the delight to talk to Serge Dedina co-founder and executive director of WildCoast and Matt Costa from SCRIPPS Institution of Oceanography. 

 

Serge’s many achievements include: 

  • Helping stop efforts to build large-scale tourist resorts and marinas in national parks and protected areas
  • Launching the wildly successful “don’t eat sea turtle” campaign 
  • Helping develop millions of acres of coastline protected areas in California and Mexico
  • Developing a  campaign with reck superstars Linking Park around natural climate solutions...And this is just some. 

Matt  is a postdoctoral scholar in the SCRIPPS Integrative Oceanography Division where he has been researching :

  • Blue Carbon
  • Coastal Ecology
  • Climate Change Adaptation 
  • Conservation
  • Mangrove Forests 
  • Sediment Biogeochemistry  
  • All this as well as working alongside Serge and Wild Coast on many of their projects. 

WILDCOAST is an international team working to conserve more than 31.6 million acres of pristine coastlines, mangrove forests, grey whale lagoons, turquoise islands, stunning coral reefs, coastal wetlands and open ocean ecosystems.

Their work stretches from the wild coasts of California down to Mexico and more.
