This park is the most important area in the entire west half of the Caribbean for the nesting of the green turtle. Volunteers participate on the sea turtle preservation including monitoring and registering nesting patterns, record keeping of eggs, moving eggs to the hatchery, beach patrols, freeing of the newborns to the ocean. Experience not required, but anticipate strange work hours (middle of the night!) and lots of time spent on the beach.
Our projects are open to students studying; or those with a keen interest, biology, marine life, animal welfare and conservation efforts around the World. Volunteering in the National Parks of Costa Rica help to solve some of the issues related to the lack of personnel and budget cutbacks that the Costa Rican's government has to face every year. We know that volunteers play a vital role in the conservation efforts: without outside assistance, these projects would be lost. Come join us and make a difference!
