Explore the tropical paradise on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica while helping research the endangered jaguar in Tortuguero National Park. Learn from experts while helping track jaguars with remote cameras and gaining a greater understanding of the ecosystem as a whole.
You will also learn about turtles, birds and the numerous other critters crawling around the jungle, all the while gaining access to remote beaches and areas of the park. By the end of the trip, you are sure to have enhanced your skills as a conservationist and made a positive impact with the conservation efforts in the region.
Carrying out the programs activities on the beaches and forests in the area, you will live on our base at Jalova. With Tortuguero’s amazing scenery, incredible beaches and through dawn patrols, spectacular sunrises as the backdrop, you will hone your research skills collecting important data. Through the processing, analysis, and recording of data, you will also get to grips with the technical aspects of field based research. Making lifelong friends, and invaluable contacts in the research world, you will live on our small but comfortable base with fellow volunteers, forging a tight-knit group experience you will never forget.
