8-day Costa Rica Green Turtle Research Expedition

Volunteer with Green Sea Turtles

see2EcoTeach has partnered with SEE Turtles to offer the Green Sea Turtle Volunteer trip to Costa Rica.  Volunteer with endangered sea turtles on Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula where you will assist biologists and project staff with the monitoring of green and hawksbill turtles by boat.  Measure and tag turtles before releasing back into the ocean, participate in mangrove clean-up and reforestation, hike in the rainforest and tour a chocolate farm.  SEE Turtles is a non-profit organization with a mission to protect endangered turtles throughout Latin America and the world by supporting community-based conservation efforts through conservation travel, education, and fundraising through our Billion Baby Turtles program.  Check out all the trip details and register for the Green Turtle Research Expedition!

The Highlights:

  • Spend 4 days on the incredible Osa Peninsula catching and releasing turtles, restoring mangroves, and more.
  • Learn about the origins of chocolate and visit a farm where cacao is grown.  You’ll also taste many other delicious fruits and learn how organic farming can help wildlife.
  • This trip can also be done year round as a private trip for families (8 years and up), and small groups.
  • Profits from this trip will help to save at least 100 hatchlings at a turtle nesting beach per participant.
