The Baleal Surf Fest has a very unique concept, driven by the surf community of Peniche and the region around it. The basis of this small event is rooted in Chile where in a talk with some of the people of Surfers for Cetaceans, like Howie Cooke and Dave Rastovich, and also inspired by their campaign called “El Mar, Mi Alma”, that was aimed at the heart of the surf communities in Chile and the civil society in general.
In June-September 2009 OMACHA worked to develop a Peruvian Action Plan. They have also organised a workshop in Bolivia to design the Bolivian River Dolphin Action Plan.
Here are the projects we were involved with in 2009.
