Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2008
This description of María de los Ángeles Carvajal's work was prepared when María de los Ángeles Carvajal was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
María de los Ángeles Carvajal is an environmentalist working in the Gulf of California where she is creating conditions for more sustainable development through SuMar. As Mexico’s coastal regions are being excessively developed and communities are exploiting the natural resources, thus damaging the environment, María seeks viable solutions that incorporate conservation into policies and the daily decisions of coastal villages. Additionally, a new network of old players is rejuvenating small conservationist movements throughout the region about environmental protection and sustainable development.
