Estación Las Tortugas is a sea turtle nesting project to help protect the critically endangered leatherback sea turtle from the illegal poaching and to help its recovery on an national and international level. It’s situated on a 3km beach on the Caribbean coast of Costa.


The Station’s goal is to conserve the turtles and their habitat together with promoting awareness and education through its education program which includes the Education Centre “Las Siete Quillas”.


Volunteers are of utmost importance as this could not be a successful project without them. Schools, students, groups, individual volunteers and researchers all contribute to the success and development of the project.
