Happy Birthday Cocos Island National Park!
Isla del Coco National Park celebrates its 40th birthday on June 22, 2018.
What better gift can we give than a well-deserved 4,000 additional miles2 of absolute protection?
The Rescue Center for Endangered Marine Species (CREMA) is a Costa Rican non-profit NGO founded in 2012. We are a marine conservation and research organization working to protect ocean resources and promote sustainable fisheries policies in Costa Rica and Central America.
Costa Rica has an image as a conservationist country. Indeed there are many positive laws and regulations on paper in Costa Rica.
However, marine conservation is very far behind land conservation here, and furthermore, many of the positive laws and regulations that do exist go unenforced.
