Join Oyster Worldwide on our turtle conservation project in beautiful Costa Rica. Gain the experience of a lifetime whilst making a serious contribution to the preservation of turtles, an issue that is in dire need of attention. The project allows you to get up close to these stunning animals, and as a result, you can really get involved in their protection and development.
During the project you will live in a remote village community, therefore encouraging you to immerse yourself in the local culture. By day, you will help with research whilst keeping a watchful eye on the hatching turtles. If not working with the turtles, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the beautiful beaches from the view of a hammock, explore the community and try the local cuisine. By night, whilst on beach patrol you will see the beaches come alive with nesting turtles under the light of the Milky Way. The project is extremely worthwhile, and will give you an experience that is hard to forget.
