Help trained researchers patrol the beach in Pacuare to look for nesting adult female turtles. If we find a turtle, we’ll take biometric data from her before collecting the eggs from her nest and taking them back to the safe hatchery. We aim to relocate 100% of the nests we find in order to avoid poaching, predation, and erosion. Be prepared to walk 14km (8.7 miles) round trip on the beach during our shift. This is a social impact trip where 100% of what you pay goes to the Latin American Sea Turtles Association (LAST).
LAST (Latin American Sea Turtles) Association is a Costa Rican NGO working to make a change in sea turtle conservation. Our field teams are integrated by local assistants with unparalleled experience in sea turtle research and conservation, people with vast experience working with volunteers and environmental enthusiasts developing creative strategies to avoid the extinction of these species.
Our vision is to realize a future where all inhabitants of the Costa Rican coasts, human and sea turtle alike, can live together in balance; where healthy populations of sea turtles fulfill their ecological roles and economic potential; and critical natural habitats are sustainably managed.
