Stakeholders and organisations coordinate regular clean-up events, removing debris on beaches, mangroves, and at sea to help care for the environment in and around Golfo Dulce.

Another initiative to improve and protect the environment is the Plant-a-Mangrove Programme. Operated by Osa Ecology, this initiative plants a baby mangrove for every tourist who joins a tour with Changing Tide Tours. The aim is to facilitate mangrove expansion and restoration, creating important habitat for various marine species and serving as protective nursery grounds for the fishes that Golfo Dulce dolphins feed on. Since 2019, over 3000 sapling red mangroves have been planted, many of which are now trees!

Other initiatives adopted in the area include programmes and campaigns to increase recycling, reduce single-use plastics, and encourage the use of reef-friendly sunscreen.
