The volunteer program is aimed at helping to conserve and protect the population of olive Ridley turtles in Costa Rica although other species of turtles are also involved.
The program is run at ostkonal beach.
Volunteers can sign up for any length of time from 2 to 12 weeks.
All volunteers will be housed with local families near the beach don`t expect luxury; this is basic at best.
English is not usual in local families.
It is possible to sign up as a group or just as an individual without prior expdrience but we do have an age requirement of over 18.
A health check and police chech will be required.
The main involvement in this program is with recording data helping tagging removing debris from the beach to ensure clean passage for adults and baby turtles and also to assist in egg relocation.
This is a unique experience for anyone interested in turtles and conservation.
