The purpose of Wells Ocean and Environment is to work with one of the world’s most biologically diverse bodies of water, the Sea of Cortez, that is in danger due to overfishing and acidification. This stretch of sea between Mexico’s mainland and the Baja California peninsula is home to thousands of marine species, abundant natural resources, and striking natural beauty. However, for the past 20 years and increasingly over the last five, the Sea of Cortez Region has drawn international attention, not for its diversity and splendor, but for the critical endangerment of two of its extremely rare species, the vaquita (Phocoena sinus) and totoaba (Totoaba Macdonaldi). With estimates of as few as 30 vaquita remaining, this small porpoise is considered to be on the very edge of extinction.
Wells Ocean and Environment's mission is to help these endangered species and their ecosystem by providing a clear, structured approach to a sustainable solution centered on goals that are focused on the needs, desires and well-being of the entire region and its people. By integrating proven, business management turnaround methodologies and mentorship, with the goal of transitioning local business leaders and Mexican nationals to leadership of the project within a two-to-five year time frame. Wells Ocean and Environment plans to engage with non-governmental organizations already contributing to subparts of the region’s challenges to build on knowledge previously gained. With its diverse species, resources, and challenges within a finite space, the Region offers unique opportunities for investigation, discovery, and problem solving that can be replicated globally. Wells Ocean & Environment is now a non-profit 501(c)(3) company, approved in April 2017.
