On our trip through Costa Rica, we will try to meet two to three different species of sea turtles.

Video by @paaulinaaa05 (IG)
You have always dreamed about volunteering for a sea turtle project because you love sea turtles and would like to vacation with purpose, …
...but you haven't dared to travel all by yourself to any of the tropical countries where sea turtles can be found?
...you are thinking about a career in marine conservation, but you are not sure if that field is really for you?
...you don't have three months to spare for a volunteer trip?
...but you would like to make sure that you are making a true difference, supporting grassroots conservation efforts, and not falling into the trap of booking with an expensive tour company that pockets all the money?
Then this is the trip for you!
This group volunteering experience in Costa Rica, with me as an experienced travel guide and sea turtle expert, will provide you with an incredible learning experience in a safe environment, so you can concentrate on saving sea turtles.
A perfect opportunity to get your feet wet for the first time, dipping your toes into sea turtle research and conservation in one of the most beautiful and biodiverse places in the world.

SEA TURTLE FIELD COURSE
Each year I run a two-week-long (sometimes three-week-long) immersive field course in sea turtle biology, ecology, and conservation for students at advanced undergraduate or early postgraduate level who have a keen interest, but little experience, in sea turtle research and conservation.
My courses provide practical training and first-hand experience on a sea turtle nesting beach and/or in an in-water research project, with an emphasis on building skills and understanding. They provide a valuable foundation for future independent research projects and a career in sea turtle conservation and research.
The new hybrid format of the courses now allows students to study the theory at home at their own pace and start the field course with a solid theoretical foundation (courses will go online in May 2024).
I run my courses in collaboration with grassroots conservation and research organizations in mainly Central and South America, ensuring they directly benefit the respective projects and at the same time can provide the professional experience I envision for my students.
