About

Fundación Yepez A.C. is a non-profit organization that has been protecting sea turtles in veracruz Mexico for 49 years. The organization is small and growing fast so we need all the help we can get to be able tocontinue all of the eco-projects that we run. We run reforestation projects, community projects, environmental education and recycling programs, so variety is definitely part of the job. We are currently looking for an administrator to help us with the ever increasing amounts of office work, databases, grantwriting, reports etc. We appreciate any experience in these areas but training will be provided so it is not essential, much more important is your desire to learn and work hard. Both the job and the location require an independent self-motivated person, seeing as we are based on a remote beach with little social activities so if you enjoy a quiet place to read a book on the beach in your spare time etc then this is the place for you.

We are looking for volunteers for a minimum of 2 months starting ASAP, and there is no fee to volunteer with us. Shorter stays are welcome but include a fee, so please get in touch if you are interested. The cost for food and accommodation is MXN$1200MXN/week (around USD$70/week), there is no other fee, however all other expenses such as travel etc. must be covered by the volunteer. Please find more information about us on our website www.tortugasfundacionyepez.com (English/Volunteers) and contact us with any questions you might have on info@tortugasfundacionyepez.com The only requirements are good health, independency and a desire to help protect sea turtles and their environment and of course being in Mexico, speaking Spanish is very important!
