Mexico is the Central American heartland that epitomises the best of Latin fiesta spirit and the legacy of the Mayan civilization.
Mexico’s environment is under great threat from human influences including the development of the coastline and recreational activities which result in disturbances and habitat loss. Turtles are slow to adapt to changing environmental conditions and many baby turtles are eaten by predators in the first few months or choked by litter and pollution while still juveniles.
As a volunteer you will be working to rehabilitate juvenile sea turtles in a natural enclosure until they are ready for release. Other activities include beach patrols during the day or night, and the opportunity to learn about the other marine education and research programmes organised by the project.
