Cocos Island - Pulling Back the Veil

Dear Cocos Supporters,

Cocos Island presents us with a paradox. We love the fact that it has been spared development and that the landscape remains pristine. The same isolation that has protected Cocos Island also makes it very difficult to protect her from poaching.



Park guards and other volunteers have been criticized for not keeping the poachers at bay. Sea Save Foundation members are privileged to have been given the opportunity to live and work with the Cocos Island park family once again. We are reporting on the beauty of the island and the challenges facing her.




If you are interested in seeing what goes on behind the scenes, please check in on our blog over the next few days and please be sure to share it with your friends!
