Program Overview

Program Description:
Part of the activities our volunteers engage in include night patrols to eliminate illegal looting, protecting baby turtles (while hatching births), beach cleanups and general maintenance work on the facilities. We also need help with ongoing research projects. Due to staffing shortages, volunteer support is critical!

Setting Description:
Our sea-turtle project is based out of the stunning Ostional Wildlife Reserve in Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula. See our website for photos and what our volunteers have written about their experiences in our Volunteer Blog.
