What you'll do

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).
