Founded in 2016.

Along the coast of the Osa Peninsula, azure waves crash down on sand and rock, sending up saltwater mist over the vast, sprawling jungle ... This is one of the last places in the world where virgin rainforest grows right to the high tide line. This junction of land and sea creates a unique zone that supports exceptional biodiversity and offers refuge for sea turtles, scarlet macaws, and other endangered species.

Our Mission

It's simple really — we want to do everything in our power to preserve this beautiful part of the world, especially its creatures. 

We combine community involvement, strategic partnerships and on the ground data collection, to support the protection & education of species endemic to the Osa Peninsula and Golfo Dulce.


The 5 ways we make an impact:


  • Promote awareness of unique biodiversity found endemically in the Osa Peninsula & Golfo Dulce
  • Provide environmental education opportunities to local community and international visitors and volunteers

  • Build relationships and foster collaboration with governmental entities and similar interest groups
  • Collect data on key species that is quantifiable, qualitative, and scalable

  • Leverage findings to support and enhance current protection levels, potentially influencing related legislation
