Wildlife & Nature Conservation Volunteer Opportunity

  • Nautla, Estado de Veracruz-Llave, Mexico

Please find more information on our website www.tortugasfundacionyepez.com and contact us with any questions you might have info@tortugasfundacionyepez.com

Fundación Yepez A.C. is a non-profit organization that has been protecting sea turtles in veracruz Mexico for 49 years. The organization is small and family run and we need all the help we can get to be able to protect this endangered species and implement all of the eco-projects that we run. Thousands of sea turtles nest on our beautiful beaches during the season (March to November) and we work in many different ways to conserve and protect them. Whilst most of the work is hands on work on the beach, such as patrolling, protecting and nest marking and rescue, there are also many other tasks such as administration that we need help with at our centre. We run reforestation projects, community projects, environmental education and recycling programs, so variety is definitely part of the job.
