WHO WE ARE
The Corcovado Foundation is a non-profit organization, a leader in conservation in Costa Rica. We work with people to protect our natural resources. Our conservation programs are based in the South Pacific region of Costa Rica, known as the Osa Peninsula, which is famous for its intense biodiversity and unspoiled nature.
WHAT WE DO
We use education to address and promote the involvement and call to action of local communities. We support governmental and non-governmental entities in the search for sustainable, balanced and equitable development for them. Our focus is local, but our impact is global.
Donors, volunteers and members are the driving force behind our environmental efforts. Our programs depend on donations from people like you, we invite you to make a difference.
WHERE WE WORK
We started our work in the Osa Peninsula, working with the communities and protecting the Corcovado National Park. Currently we work in almost the entire national territory, of the 11 conservation areas we work in 9 of them.
We are part of a great network that is trying to make this world a better place, for all of us and for the rest of the creatures that live with us.
