Learn about the Costa Rican rainforest and ecosystems, while participating in important research involving species such as jaguars, sea turtles and aquatic birds. Research and data collected on this program assists the Costa Rican government to make important conservation decisions.
This expedition is the essence of remote adventure as there is no road access to the base, you will truly be surrounded by the amazing natural beauty of Tortugero’s Caribbean beaches and rainforest, with all transport via canoe and boat, courtesy of the green canals. Although challenging, you will find the work extremely rewarding as you work on research projects and receive training on field skills.With enough room for research and relaxation, the base is small but comfortable; and provides a great environment for volunteers to get to know their fellow participants. Camp duties are shared rotationally amongst all the expedition team.
