We are proud to be supported by two of the world’s most renowned NGO's that are committed to conservation and sustainable development.
Conservation International is a non-profit organization dedicated to protect the Earth’s most important biodiversity centers. It has 40 member countries and participated in the original financing of the Veragua Rainforest through its Verde Ventures Fund.
Ecoteach is a North American tour operator that brings students, teachers, individuals and families to Costa Rica, Mexico and Peru for ecological expeditions that focus on conservation work, authentic cultural exchange, guided exploration and fun. EcoTeach has been instrumental in the development of educational programs for student travelers to the Veragua Rainforest and shares a common mission of promoting sustainability, innovation, and “hands- on” experiences.
The project management and development for the Veragua Rainforest Eco-Adventure was led by Noveza, a Costa Rican firm focused on creating and developing unique and challenging projects with a social objective. In 2012, Noveza was joined by new partner Global Destinations, an American-led development firm with expertise in the creation of Caribbean tourism projects for visitors.
The Foundation for Rainforest Research is a Costa Rican foundation initiated in 2012, and today is supported financially entirely through the operations of the Veragua Rainforest Eco-Adventure and the contributions of partners Noveza and Global Destinations.
Founded in 1940, the University of Costa Rica is the country’s largest and most renowned university with around 30,000 students. It is a public university with six main knowledge areas. The Basic Sciences Area includes the School of Biology, which is the national point of reference in the subject matter because of its faculty and students.
With 50 years of experience, People to People Ambassador Programs takes students into places no ordinary tour group can go— on all seven continents. We challenge tomorrow’s leaders to expand their global awareness, discover new confidence, and have the time of their lives.
