A Unique Story

Drake Bay Backpackers is owned and managed by the Corcovado Foundation, a non-governmental, non-profit organization that works with the Osa Peninsula's local community on environmental conservation. The Foundation was created by neighbors of the Corcovado National Park in order to be the leaders in the fight against illegal hunting and forestry exploitation.

They are a local conservation leader that works in close collaboration with the National Parks Service to protect wild life heritage and the future of protected areas. They promote environmental education and defend the rights of the surrounding communities, while at the same time promoting sustainable tourism as a tool to help protect the Osa Peninsula from unsustainable development.

The Foundation is responsible for executing a wide variety of programs in which volunteers can participate, such as sea turtle conservation, environmental education, reforestation, beach clean-ups, development of sustainable tourism and much more.
