Where Travel Can Change the World

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, 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, visit the on-site turtle rescue center 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.
