We are a non-government organization that operates in Costa Rica with Indigenous Communities, Sea Turtle Conservation, Volunteering and Teaching opportunities. We are located on the Nesting Beaches of the Costa Rica Caribbean surrounded by Indigenous Communities.
We believe that connecting people with nature, hands-on experiences, education, and local community involvement can really make a difference for endangered sea turtles and help reduce the threats these animals are facing today. Scientific research is the base for our conservation activities, with which we hope to contribute on the recovery of sea turtle populations and prevent their extinction. Volunteers are essential for the protection of nests and sea turtles, and volunteer fees helps to local communities.
We strives to increase alternative livelihoods for Indigenous and Coastal Communities to take the need for poaching and hunting turtles and other wildlife away and to achieve a long lasting sustainable wildlife management. From March to October, volunteers help patrol 7.1 km of nesting beach, collecting important data on nesting female turtles and their nests. They also participate in hatchery activities, beach cleaning and other tasks as needed; also support all year long indigenous efforts.
