Sea turtle conservation program in Playa Junquillal, Costa Rica
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP
Short-Term (few weeks/months)
This volunteer project is based in Playa Junquillal of Santa Cruz, Costa Rica and since 2001 is working for the conservation of sea turtles and the Rio Nandamojo. The goal is to ensure the conservation of threatened ecosystems and contribute to the well being of communities who depend on them.
Junquillal is a very important breeding zone in Pacific Costa Rica for endangered Leatherback turtles (Dermochelys coriacea), Black turtles (Chelonia mydas agassizii) and Loras turtles (Lepidochelys olivacea). Volunteers will join the efforts to protect the sea turtles, mitigate poaching, ensure optimal conditions for nesting turtles through active conservation and community support, and increase the welfare of the local population of Junquillal.
