What we do

Conservation and restoration of coastal lagoons
and their land and sea areas

The coast of Uruguay is threatened by high-impact investment and infrastructure projects, lack of planning and by economic and productive activities that are not compatible with conservation. It also suffers increasingly from the impacts of plastic pollution.

FLC focuses on generating valid information, interacting with the University of the Republic and competent professionals and experts, to influence decision-making and the approval of necessary legislation and its implementation. We place great emphasis on environmental education and awareness raising activities, working with schools and colleagues from other civil society organisations to educate, raise public awareness and empower local communities vis-à-vis the need for conservation and action. Our work aims to inspire a national culture of sustainable development with environmental protection at its core.
