Help Us Save Our Beautiful Ocean
For All of Us
In Costa Rica, we have one of the highest biodiversities both on the land and in the water.
Our oceans are important to our way of life and protecting them is our duty.

What we do….Marine Conservation Costa Rica
Our flagship project is coral reef restoration in Manuel Antonio. With the establishment of various coral nursery sites throughout the park we are working hard to give our reefs a chance.
Education is key to any conservation effort. By helping people understand why things are happening around and what they can do to make things better, it is our greatest weapon.
As well as our restoration project we are closely monitoring our local, living reefs. This involves a number of surveys around Manuel Antonio looking at reef inhabitants and structure.

We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It
If you walk along the beach and look out at our beautiful ocean it can be hard to imagine the amazing diversity that lies below the rippling surface. The oceans contain an estimated 2.2 million species, many of which are under threat.
