What to Expect

Your marine adventure is all about protecting the sea turtle population. You’ll learn a great deal about the dangers these animals face and the threat increased pollution and deforestation has on the species future.

Your daily activities depend on where the work is need. One day you may be working in the hatchery, as a volunteer Marine researcher you will help the young hatch. Another day you may be out on beach patrols. Where do the turtles come up to land, are they protected. On another day you may be heading out to sea. As part of our marine research team you will join the boat crew to  first catch, then bring on to the boat, to measure and tag the turtles so we can monitor them from birth and through their growth before releasing them into the Pacific ocean. 

Our World’s oceans need your help this summer, come join us and make a difference.
