Shorefast creates and shares new ways to care for the health of coastal and oceanic ecosystems while supporting the culture of people whose lives and livelihoods are linked to the sea.
Through multi-pronged initiatives, we seek to achieve the following:
• Build awareness of Fogo Island’s waterways and the Labrador Current as critical to helping meet the climate challenge.
• Engage with community members in environmental stewardship practices on Fogo Island and look for ways to adapt our learnings for other coastal and rural communities.
• Facilitate research that expands our knowledge of Fogo Island’s natural environment.
•Promote responsible development of our natural assets, including marine and other wildlife, geology, and land vegetation.
