International Sonoran Desert Alliance (ISDA)
International Sonoran Desert Alliance (ISDA) is a non-profit corporation founded in 1993 and governed by a board of directors representing the indigenous and non-indigenous populations of the U.S. and Mexico.
They are a group of concerned people from all walks of life who have joined forces to:
promote the concept and practice of conservation throughout the bio region;
provide education in ways of protecting and respecting valuable biological and cultural resources and traditions;
develop creative and sustainable solutions to critical local issues such as housing and economic development;
and provide practical opportunities for individual and community action.
ISDA also hosts public meetings that provide opportunity for broad community participation, and seeks input from a wide cross-section of voices and cultures.
At board meetings ISDA conducts business in three languages-English, Spanish, and O’odham, and they prepare literature, from books to leaflets and the website, bilingually.See more
