Fundación Vida Azul (Vida Azul)

Fundación Vida Azul was founded in 2007 when a group of scuba-diving friends decided to do something about the deteriorating situation of the coasts of our country. Since 2008, we have represented OCEAN CONSERVANCY in the coordination of the International Day of Coastal Clean Up in the Dominican Republic. We have consistently received 4s and 5s for the highest number of volunteers among the top 10 participating countries. The activity takes place annually in 127 countries.
