The People of MarVivo

Regina Domingo

Project Coordinator

Regi is the project coordinator at Mar Vivo she is also the Founder and Executive Director of the Nakawe Project, a non-profit organization that focuses on wildlife conservation & community engagement.

Growing up by the Mediterranean Sea, close to Barcelona, meant the ocean inevitably shaped Regi’s philosophy towards life. Her love and passion for marine life, combined with awareness of the imminent threats facing the marine environment, led Regi to move to Costa Rica in 2012 to volunteer with the park rangers of Cocos Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in order to preserve the marine park and its unique wildlife from illegal fishing.

Regi has since been involved with a number of different conservation projects across Central America and the South Pacific, as well as Europe. Notably, Regi was a key team member of Rob Stewart’s project Sharkwater Extinction.

Presently, Regi lives in Baja California Sur, Mexico where she oversees Nakawe Project and Nakawe Experiences, with a focus on developing both conservation and ecotourism projects that support local communities by providing more sustainable alternatives to fishing activities.
