Our SDG Action on September 25th

BUILDING KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS ACROSS GENERATIONS OF INDIGENOUS GUNA YALA TO SAVE MARINE WILDLIFE

Panama Guna Yala
Number of people taking this action: 50-250
Our Panama research officer will be conducting trainings and educational workshops for traditional Guna fishers and raising awareness on how to protect the precious marine wildlife of the indigenous Guna Yala region. This work is important because we train community members about how the region’s marine diversity can be beneficial to them. As the indigenous people are the guardians of the islands, the reef and their wildlife, they are gradually assuming responsibility for it. If they manage the marine resources carefully and safeguard their quality, they will be able to continue benefiting from them for generations to come.
