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. Please remember in the first month and the last month the majority of the work will be in documentations.
