When Whales Win, Everyone Wins: How a Whale Study in Mexico Transformed a Community, Katherina Audley - American Cetacean Society  External Event Page
Bay Model Visitor Center   Organization Web Page
Sausalito, California
Barra de Potosi' in Southwest Mexico is a little-known jewel, and it's at a tipping point. Humpback whales breed there every winter, and resident dolphins delight visitors, but before Katherina Audley arrived, fishing was almost the only local industry and it was on the verge of collapse due to fishery decline. For the past six years, Audley and her organization, Whales of Guerrero Research Project, have been working to improve the local economy in a cetacean-friendly way through cooperative research, ecotourism, and community-driven conservation. ///// Whales of Guerrero Research Project has been conducting collaborative whale and dolphin research in Barra de Potosi' since 2013. With local fisheries on the verge of collapse, the organization has worked with local communities to form ecotourism cooperatives providing a new way to make a living.

The seeds of stewardship have taken root in Barra de Potosi', and now they are beginning to bear fruit: ecotourism has brought 2.5 million USD into the community and the tourism cooperative now outnumbers the fishing cooperative; there isn't a child in the village who can?t sing like a humpback whale; women are selling nature-themed handicrafts with great success at a new annual village art fair and beyond; fishermen have become incredibly talented and committed whale watch guides who take care and work together beautifully around whales and dolphins. ////// Come learn about the 16 species of marine mammals identified so far in this region. Hear about this special village in Mexico where all the resident kids know their local whales by name and how a community of fishermen became committed whale protectors. Katherina will also share her top ti
