CREMA is a Costa Rican non-profit NGO founded in 2012. Its a marine conservation and research organization working to protect ocean resources and promote sustainable fisheries policies in Costa Rica and Central America.
Costa Rica has an image as a conservationist country. Indeed there are many positive laws and regulations on paper in Costa Rica.
However, marine conservation is very far behind land conservation here, and furthermore, many of the positive laws and regulations that do exist go unenforced.
As a result, CREMA directs their efforts in the following categories:
- Direct in the field conservation projects
- Public awareness and education
- International marine biodiversity conservation policy.
Iguana Divers helps them on the Hawksbill turtle program.
