With your donation, children from schools located in areas with socio-environmental in vulnerability of Costa Rica will learn to take care of the beaches in Costa Rica and the entire world with the help of our marine biologists. For over 35 years, Fundacion Neotropica has partnered with communities to protect the environment through environmental education programs.

Shells, corals, stones, among others, are often removed of their natural ecosystem by national and foreign tourists who see them as souvenirs. These marine resources carry out an essential role in the life of various species on the beach and when they are extracted, biodiversity becomes damaged. Once outside its environment, it loses its natural bond and does not fulfill its mission in the life cycle of its ecosystem. With our educational programs children will have access to this infomation.


The Environmental Education Program promotes environmental leadership in school-age children that live in urban areas affected by social and economic vulnerabilities. The Environmental Programs has a participatory, experiential and inclusive methodology for children, with the help and guidance of its teachers and environmental educators. Thus, the students manage to discover, reflect and build practical concepts about the environment, environmental justice and respect for natural resources.

Long-Term Impact

Unlike other countries, in Costa Rica the extraction of these and other natural resources is illegal, but factors like the lack of access to information and custom prevent tourists from understanding the real damage. Through educational workshops imparted by the Fundacion Neotropica team of marine biologists, girls and boys will have the opportunity to learn while having fun. In the near future, on both national and international beaches, children will be the best allies against climate change.
