The Oro Verde Foundation (Fundación Oro Verde, para la Cooperación y el Desarrollo) is a non-profit organization (NGO) created to develop definitive solutions for Environmental Concerns in Costa Rica and Central America. To fulfill this ambitious role, Oro Verde functions as a scientific research service provider, an international education resource, an environmental protection and reclamation organization, and a community development service.


Oro Verde is dedicated to finding solutions to common environmental problems and their underlying social causes, with the conviction that caring for the environment is our historically entrusted moral responsibility. Deforestation, extinction, natural water source pollution, wastewater treatment and trash disposal, and many other environmental infractions have yet to be adequately researched and their "human" causes have not yet been sufficiently addressed in Costa Rica. Conservation is of utmost importance, but it must be accompanied by attention to the social issues, which cause environmental exploitation and degradation. As we care for the environment and use our natural resources responsibly we not only improve mankind's standard of living and hope for the future, we also realign ourselves, in part, with the purpose for which we were created and approximate ourselves to our Creator, as stewards of His Creation.
