State, Federal and Local Partners Unite to Launch
Land to Sea Conservation Collaborative
Cape Perpetua exemplifies the land-sea connection, a unique place where land and sea intersect to produce productive coastal rainforests and ocean upwelling that fuels a productive food web.
Now through a unique partnership, state and federal agencies and local NGOs alongside of businesses and other partners are coming together in a collaborative and coordinated fashion to build capacity for outreach, education, research and management initiatives associated with the Cape Perpetua. “Working together as a Collaborative and coordinating conservation efforts in this region helps us leverage our collective resources so we’re not operating in silos but in concert with each other,” says Tara Dubois, the Collaborative’s Coordinator. “Our vision is to foster conservation and collaboration within local communities for scientific exchange, management, awareness, and stewardship from the land to the sea within the Cape Perpetua Region.”
To celebrate these accomplishments and make a formal public launch of the Cape Perpetua Collaborative, a private event will be held on May 24th at Yachats Brewing + Farmstore.
The event will highlight recent accomplishments of the Collaborative and we will have a signing ceremony. Libations and finger food will be courtesy of Yachats Brewing + Farmstore, the newest business partner of the Collaborative, who will also be presenting the Collaborative with proceeds from their Cetacean ale to support ongoing work of the collaborative.
