Costa Rican Environmental Protection Society (S/F)

The Costa Rican Environmental Protection Society (CREPS) was an authority on environmental preservation in Costa Rica. They appear to be officially recognized by Costa Rica’s government.*

Conservation of Isla Nublar

Between 2002 and 2004, InGen (now under ownership of Masrani Global Corporation) constructed the Jurassic World theme park on Isla Nublar. The park opened in 2005. That same year, Masrani Global Corporation (headed at the time by Simon Masrani) signed an agreement with the Costa Rican Environmental Protection Society to conserve Isla Nublar’s natural environment.

The agreement served to protect both the indigenous wildlife of Isla Nublar, such as the Nublar tufted deer (Elaphodus cephalophus nublarus) and migratory species such as the brown pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis).

Masrani Global Corporation’s website, which was last updated immediately after the Jurassic World incident of December 2015, still included information about the agreement, indicating that it lasted the entire duration of the park’s operation on the island. However, the Costa Rican Environmental Protection Society was not known to have any involvement with the threat of Mount Sibo erupting in 2018; in fact, Costa Rica’s government withdrew all scientific instruments from the area early in the year.

*In real life, environmental protection in Costa Rica is managed by the Costa Rican Ministry of Environment and Energy (Ministro de Ambiente y Energía de Costa Rica).
