Rescuing Marine Giants in Mexico (RABEN)

Ecología y Conservación de Ballenas (ECOBAC), is a Mexican non-profit organization, devoted mainly to research, protection and conservation of Mexico’s natural resources, specially the Humpback Whale in Banderas Bay.

Our mission is to contribute to the conservation of Mexico’s marine resources, particularly of the humpback whale and its habitat.

ECOBAC's main objectives are:

  • Encourage marine mammal research projects in the coasts of Jalisco and Nayarit, a very important area for the conservation of species since it´s the entrance to the Sea of Cortes.
  • Promote the exchange of knowledge and information in order to benefit the conservation and protection of wildlife.
  • Encourage protection, conservation and information actions for the sustainable management of natural resources, especially cetaceans and their habitat.
  • Create a wildlife conservation, information and research center.
