Outstanding summer programs for teens since 1982
Costa Rica: Sea Turtle Conservation

Wildlife Conservation Program in Costa Rica

This is the perfect program for teens who want to learn about and help with conservation efforts! You will travel to both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts of Costa Rica while working with like-minded peers in an effort to protect the country’s sea turtle population. Healthy oceans need sea turtles to help maintain their complex ecosystems. Every day will be different as you help with various sea turtle conservation tasks such as scientific research, egg incubation and mangrove preservation. Afternoons and evenings will be just as hands-on and unique with harbor patrol, hatchling rescue and collecting and re-burying sea turtle eggs. There is so much to be done as you help to protect this endangered species. Outside your volunteering time, you will experience amazing adventures from ziplining to a sunset catamaran snorkel cruise. Your volunteer program in Costa Rica will be forever memorable and impactful!
