Description

In this unique program, we work to protect the Costa Rican environment, in which sea turtles play an important role. We strive to reduce the negative impact that human and natural factors have on these beautiful animals through:

- Beach surveillance and cleanups
- Protection and registration of nesting turtles, as well as mapping the locations of their nests and nurseries
- Reconstruction of nurseries
- Plantation
- Teaching of environmental issues

We’ll carry out helpful activities that will surely be of interest to those who love animals and care for nature.

We’re looking for volunteers to join us in the forest reserve, Matina Pacuare, during the turtle nesting season from the end of March to the end of August.

While volunteering with us in Costa Rica, you’ll have the chance to explore some of the country’s scenic sites such as Tortuguero, Monteverde, or numerous national parks.
