The mission of the Vermilion Sea Institute is to foster sustainable and enriching relationships between human societies and the ecosystems that support them. Because we recognize that these relationships are complex and multi-dimensional, VSI supports and implements programs that address not only ecological, but also cultural, economic, and sociopolitical aspects of environmental issues.
Located within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bahía de los Ángeles Biosphere reserve, VSI’s historic marine field station runs programs that integrate the local Mexican community with visitors and researchers from around the world. Their programs foster global and local environmental solutions, and help build sustainable relationships between humans and the environment. We especially love their commitment to equitable access to nature, including programs for local children to educate conservationists of the future. – Vanessa
