Professional Development
& Leadership Courses in Costa Rica

In Costa Rica, we work alongside local wildlife researchers to actively support conservation efforts for endangered sea turtles. During your Program, you will assist in rescuing nesting sea turtles and oversee the release of baby sea turtles.

This Costa Rica volunteer opportunity will develop your understanding of the crucial survival of this endangered species, and our role in protecting its eco-system and nesting habitat. Our programs integrate the local community as much as possible by facilitating learning activities at the local school about the importance of protecting wildlife and our environment.
