Project Details

Based in Costa Rica, Spain, and California, Innoceana is a Marine Conservation NGO. Our mission is to rewild the ocean with Innovation & Education.

Innoceana is an international marine conservation NGO, specializing in innovation for ocean protection. First registered in Spain in 2017, Innoceana is now a 501(c)(3) in California since 2020, and an NGO in Costa Rica since 2021. Our team of professional engineers, biologists, and scuba divers have created the MCEC or Marine Conservation & Education Center to act as a hub for our conservation, research, and education activities in Costa Rica. More than a center for Innoceana’s activities, the MCEC highly values collaboration. We collaborate with various local and international NGOs, Universities, Schools, Foundations, and the local government. The MCEC hosts and supports all activities which focus on education and conservation of the environment.

Social Impact

Ideally located between Marino Ballena National Park, the largest Wetlands of Costa Rica, the renowned Corcovado National Park, and the Biological Reserve Caño Island, we aim to protect our local marine ecosystem while making participation in conservation more accessible to all ocean lovers.

Our professional team of instructors, biologists, and engineers lead marine conservation expeditions and training, as well as single-day experiences. Our participants enjoy the natural surroundings while learning about marine conservation, helping to collect essential data, and supporting local projects.

Without education, we won’t be able to save our oceans. With the MCEC, we bring in schools every week to teach them about ocean threats, conduct virtual reality workshops, learn about the impact of microplastics, and read our interactive audio-visual books. Using our documentaries and educational tools, we also receive adults and organize various events to share our results and raise awareness.

Citizen scientists like you are key to saving our oceans, join us to make a difference for a brighter future.
