Estacion Las Tortugas
Volunteers are needed for the 2016 Leatherback Turtle Nesting Season.
The station exists to protect nesting sea turtles on the the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Professionals and volunteers clean and protect nesting sites from, ocean and industrial debris as well as poaching. During nesting season, research staff gather the eggs as they are laid and relocate them to a secure section of the beach which can be monitored and and the hatchlings counted as they race for the open sea.
