Volunteers at the Costa Rica's Sea Turtles Project assist in helping to preserve Costa Rica’s incredible biodiversity by protecting the nests of magnificent endangered sea turtles and releasing turtle hatchlings into the wild.
This wonderful project was set up to improve the chance of survival of these beautiful marine creatures which are seriously under threat from poachers who trade in the turtles’ eggs, meat, skin and shells, from the destruction of their natural habitat and from accidental capture in fishing lines. The project’s main objective is to alleviate the natural and manmade threats that affect sea turtles’ nests on the beaches in Costa Rica.
You will undertake a range of duties at the project - beach cleaning, maintenance on the hatchery etc and will normally also have one night shift to patrol for turtles on the beach OR a shift working in the hatchery to monitor nests and release hatchlings.
