We are a community driven sea turtle conservation project in Costa Rica.
We patrol our beaches for nesting mother turtles. We have both olive ridley and green sea turtles nesting on our beaches, last year we recorded almost 7,000 nests! We work to collect data on the populations and protect the nests. This is not our only focus, we also work with our local community to develop and improve the local area through sustainability projects (plastic and food) as well as giving English lessons and important training like first aid to community members.
We are based in the incredibly biodiverse Osa Peninsular on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Our camp is right next to the beach in the jungle. It is a safe area with very few people around, we are often the only ones on the beach. There are no special health requirements to visit the area.
