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”
