The Corcovado Foundation is a leading not-for-profit volunteering and conservation organization in Costa Rica, with a fantastic reputation for community engagement. Our conservation programs are based in the southern pacific region of Costa Rica, known as the Osa Peninsula which is famous for its intense biodiversity and pristine wilderness.
Our conservation programs are open to volunteers from all around the world and include teaching environmental education in rural Costa Rican schools, sea turtle conservation, working to support the Osa Rural Tours Network and protect Costa Rica’s rainforests, as well as volunteer at our non-profit hostel Drake Bay Backpackers.
We champion the rights of the local communities and all of our programs have a strong focus on building relationships with the Costa Rican people in the Osa. Through respecting the needs of local people, we can work together to create a culture of sustainable development and conservation.
Amazing people and amazing place. Overall once of the best experiences of my life!
