For the last 15 years, the Sea Turtle population has been under threat from fishing and egg predation by locals. Three species of the protected Sea Turtles are nesting on India's West Coast and all of them are endangered species. With an effort to save the life of these endangered species, promote eco-system and addresses environmental issues, volunteers are working along a 60 kilometre stretch of the beach in the south and north of Kundapur, Karnataka. Right now, the work is focused on sea turtle protection and conservation. The work involves surveys, data gathering and analysis, awareness generation amongst the local community and within schools, harbours and fishing communities. You will also be required to build hatcheries and temporary information centres, as well as design and create promotional material.

The work requires high degree of motivation, interest and some knowledge in this particular field is useful.

The projects will also focus on raising awareness among the general public, fishermen communities and in the schools about the importance of turtles in the bio-diversity. The volunteers will also be involved in building huts along the beach for the Turtle Information Center.

The project is based in Kundapur on the west coast of Karnataka, near the beach, and very close to the Western Ghats (a mountain ridge). The Western Ghats is India's prime zone for bio-diversity, known for the number of animal and plant species in this region.
