NOA gives the opportunity to local students from Costa Rica to see a giant female Leatherback turtle or a beautiful humpback whale and to get involved themselves in a real marine conservation project.Local communities are impacted by environmental degradation that affects the rich biodiversity of their beautiful country as well as their health.
