WILDLIFE CONSERVATION ASSOCIATION
Inspiring sustainable living through research,
community engagement, and immersive educational experiences
The Ostional National Wildlife Refuge is renowned for hosting large mass-nesting events and featuring the densest concentrations of sea turtles on Earth.
But the area’s burgeoning tourism-driven development may threaten local wildlife, human health, and the economy.
Thanks to existing efforts of the Refuge administration, non-profits, and the community, tourism and development have been managed sustainably to date.
Our organization is working to unite ongoing efforts now to keep us on course.
"We cannot protect the world’s wildlife
unless we also protect the needs of the humans that rely on it."
Gaia Vince, “Rescue of the olive ridley sea turtle”
A healthy balance between social, environmental, and economic interests ensures successful conservation
Building a better
understanding of our environment and how we interact with it inspires a new generation of changemakers
We have achieved a lot so far, but our ambition goes further.
Our goal is to establish a center that will house all of our activities while inspiring the local community and visitors to live a sustainable lifestyle and protect the environment
With your help, we can make it possible.
