We recommend you to research about Sea turtle conservation before you come here so you can be familiar with the conservation issues sea turtles face here and world-wide. It will help put your trip here in context

If you are a long-term volunteer here (from a few weeks to a couple of months) it’s possible for you to conduct your own project while here. If this is something you are interested in please let us know before you come so we can start to develop your idea(s) together. We want to facilitate your ideas as much as possible. Beginning a dialogue with us about what people have done in the past, as well as looking through photos and resources online will help a lot. You don’t have to come up with your own project if you don’t want to, and you can simply become involved with everything else we do on a daily basis.

If you are a short-term volunteer here (few days to a few weeks) then you can just help us out in whatever is needed to get done on a daily basis. In addition to the conservation work this can include: taking care of our resident blind Green turtle, keeping our facilities clean, gardening, maintenance, construction, giving turtle talks to the general public, and more. Or if you are ambitious and have a project idea, that is ok as well.
