Saving Sea Turtle Babies on Costa Rica's Beautiful Coast

POSTED IN Blog Tags volunteer, Costa Rica, Sea Turtles AUTHOR Lennart Goebel

Go for a very special trip to volunteer in Costa Rica with this wonderful sea turtle conservation project in a paradisiac Caribbean community.
It is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself into the Spanish language at the same time you help to protect endangered species of sea turtles. You will see giant female sea turtles nesting on the beach and baby turtles crawling out of their nests in the sand towards the ocean. With your volunteer work you will also help a town that relies on its sea turtle population and to contribute to the growth and success of this grassroots conservation project.

Nikita Barnard: "I had an amazing time on Costa Rica's beautiful coast

"I had an amazing time volunteering on Costa Rica’s beautiful coast. Where at night we went on patrols to search for nests/turtles, scare off poachers (who aren’t always bad) and simply survey the beach. During the day we went on hikes to see the islands natural life and meet new people, cleaned up the beach, cleaned and prepared the hatchery and much more. I’d definitely recommend this conservation project for your next volunteer opportunity. The people were so welcoming and treated us as if we had lived there our whole lives. Everyone had a cool story and a nickname to go with it. Like mechudo and his baby blue jean poisonous dart frog… Photo will be above – Nikita Barnard

Antonia Bozzolo has been volunteering in Nepal, teaching English at a local school close to Kathmandu:

I spend a month teaching in a school in Kathmandu Nepal.
It is an amazing experience, especially if you want to put your teaching skills on the line.
I have learned not only that I love what I do, but also gained confidence and good experience.
You also get to understand a different culture and meet amazing people! – Antonia Bozzolo, Las Condes
