Help Us Save Our Beautiful Ocean
For All of Us
Here in Costa Rica we have one of the highest biodiversity both on the land and in the water. Our oceans are important to our way of life and protecting them is our duty.
Watch a Message About Us
Welcome to Marine Conservation Costa Rica. An organization dedicated to working towards a better ocean, through action and education. We are based in Manuel Antonio Costa Rica where we actively run a number of projects. Come join us on our adventure.
Every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you are connected to the sea.
About Our Foundation
Our flagship project is our rehabilitation of corals here in Manuel Antonio. With the establishment of 4 different nurseries 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.
Here in Costa Rica we have an 8 month whale season. As part of that we look to train local tourism companies about correct observation procedures and monitor their movement.
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. Our oceans contain an estimated 2.2 million species, many of which are under threat.
By working together with our local community we are striving to make an impact in our oceans here in Costa Rica. We hope that our actions will make a difference in the precious resource that is our ocean.
