Corcovado Foundation

Mission The Corcovado Foundation is a key player in the strengthening of the protected wild areas, the promotion of environmental education, sustainable tourism and community participation throughout the sustainable use of the natural resources in the South Pacific area of Costa Rica.
Sea Turtle Conservation & Environmental Education
Since 2005, our sea turtle conservation program has worked with international volunteers and local communities to protect sea turtles from poaching and create sustainable income for rural families. After successfully handing over our Drake Bay site to the local association this year, we are now working in Rio Oro. This beach is one of the most important sea turtle spots in the South Pacific of Costa Rica. In 2015, we registered more than 3000 nests and protected 94% of them from poachers. project reportread updates from the field
Santa Juana Community-Based Rural Tourism Program
With few economic opportunities and subsistence agriculture as the main occupation, Santa Juana as many rural villages are losing their populations as the young people migrate to the bigger towns, causing family disintegration and other related problems. This project intends to create more jobs, update the community water system, improve the medical examination room and build a computer lab for the school. This will improve the quality of living and will discourage emigration. project reportread updates from the field

Creating the Environmental Leaders of the New Mil
The Corcovado Foundation environmental education program has created awareness and has empowered hundreds of children during the last ten years, working in 14 schools in Drake Bay and Costa Ballena. However the program has never been funded properly and has always had limited resources. The foundation will start a process in which it promotes the planting of trees on farms, public areas and river basins. The most accomplished and involved children will then participate in a leadership program. project reportread updates from the field
