Description

We're a brandnew conservation effort on a remote beach in Nicaragua, where sea turtle eggs have been harvested since forever. Local families rely on the income they generate by selling the eggs to the market. That's why we pay for most of the nests we protect in our hatchery.
Project Assistants do not only help us physically with all the workload, but also financially. The more people come and stay, the more we can protect together.

Our ecologically-built infrastrucure is located within a virgin beachfront forest adjacent to the Pacific Ocean. We offer a camping area with a shared toilet and shower, as well as a shady community space with a well-equipped kitchen.

Project Assistants are expected to help with daily chores such as hatchery management, nest relocation, research, maintenance, gardening and more. It is important to us to give enough free time so you can enjoy the natural setting and explore the surroundings. We also have a weekly activity schedule with workshops, crafts, courses, upcycling projects and fun trips, which is optional but included in the price.

Project Assistants cook their own breakfast and lunch and receive a traditional dinner.
