About Program

Volunteers help patrol the beach to deter poachers, prepare a world famous nesting site for Leatherback, Hawksbill and Green sea turtles to lay their eggs, and to ensure they can reach the sea.

Poaching, pollution and beach erosion threaten the survival of the already endangered sea turtles, so you will be tasked to ensure they thrive.

A useful project which enables you to see the work you do to visibily increase the numbers or this threatened species. Without your help, sea turtles could be an animal of the past.

An adventure you will never forget.

Yes, I recommend this program

Fab time and seeing all the turtles hatch!

I visited this great programme and saw all the great work they do. I helped do lots of things, from collected the eggs, patrolled the beach and collected plastic from the beach. I’ve don’t a few projects before which you couldn’t really see the benefit, but this one it was obvious I was helping actually make these turtles hatch and protecting them on the way to the beach. I’m a solo female traveller and I felt safe the whole time. The location is really remote so make sure you pack all the clothes that you’ll need. I had such an amazing time and recommend this program to my friends

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
How much effort goes into protecting the turtles from poachers! I wish they didn’t catch them
