About this program

Travel to Costa Rica and take part in a sea turtle conservation project in one of three locations: Montezuma Beach, Buenavista Beach or Matapalo Beach. Join other volunteers in protecting turtle nests from poachers, harvesting programs and at hatcheries. When available, volunteers also assist with the release of hatchlings to the sea.


What to expect:

Volunteers will support research and conservation work which involves counting turtles, measuring nests, collecting scientific information and night beach patrols. Volunteers will also help protect turtle nests from human poachers, assisting on the egg-harvesting programs, and helping in the hatcheries. Volunteers may also get the opportunity to participate in the subsequent release of hatchlings to the sea
