Would you recommend Save the Turtles, Inc.?
I had an outstanding experience as a volunteer/intern with Save the Turtles. Co-founders Debbie and Jana are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about sea turtle conservation and have established a unique community-based model of conservation in Costa Rica.
As a volunteer, I was able to develop my particular interests in design and outreach. The work environment was very collaborative, and I learned a great deal about the realities of creating and maintaining an effective nonprofit.
If you are looking to make a difference in a local environmental nonprofit that works on a global scale, I highly recommend Save the Turtles.
