Sea Turtle Conservation, Pacific Coast, Costa Rica

Company : A Broader View Volunteers Corps
Activity: Conservation Volunteer Projects
Country: Costa Rica
Duration: 1 week to 3 months
Approx Costs: 750 to 2500 $ Dollars (US)

These programs are scattered along the Pacific Coast with the main projects in Puntarenas and Guanacaste provinces. 

The projects range from very secluded locations that require 4/4 vehicles and boats to access the program area to those closer to towns.  Volunteers participate on the sea turtle preservation including monitoring and registering nesting patterns, record keeping of eggs, moving eggs to the hatchery, beach patrols, freeing of the newborns to the ocean. Experience not required, but anticipate strange work hours (middle of the night!) and lots of time spent on the beach.

Our projects are open to individuals as well as groups.  We know that volunteers play a vital role in the conservation efforts: without outside assistance, these projects would be lost. Join them and make a difference!
