Saving the Baby Sea Turtles in Costa Rica: Morgan Bureau from France

Morgan Bureau from France joined our volunteer project to save the baby sea turtles in Costa Rica and is having fun doing it. We are excited about her participation in the ecological project and would like to thank Morgan so much! Her work together with the other volunteers is a vital piece to preserve the ecological balance of the oceans and the natural beauty in Costa Rica. Since poachers prey on the baby sea turtles when they try to crawl to the water, our volunteers go for patrols during the night on the beach to protect the turtles.

Marine Conservation Project in Costa Rica to save Baby Sea Turtles

Help protecting the baby sea turtles crawling to sea from poachers! We have developed this very affordable marine conservation project with your budget in mind. Our prices are among the cheapest!

Learn Spanish while working with the Baby Sea Turtles

It is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself into the Spanish language at the same time you help to protect endangered species of sea turtles. You will see giant female sea turtles nesting on the beach and baby turtles crawling out of their nests in the sand towards the ocean.It is an exciting opportunity to help a town that relies on its sea turtle population and to contribute to the growth and success of this grassroots conservation project.

Volunteering on Costa Rica’s Beautiful Coast – Saving Sea Turtles

I had an amazing time volunteering on Costa Rica’s beautiful coast. Where at night we went on patrols to search for nests/turtles, scare off poachers (who aren’t always bad) and simply survey the beach. During the day we went on hikes to see the islands natural life and meet new people, cleaned up the beach, cleaned and prepared the hatchery and much more. I’d definitely recommend this conservation project for your next volunteer opportunity. The people were so welcoming and treated us as if we had lived there our whole lives. Everyone had a cool story and a nickname to go with it. Like mechudo and his baby blue jean poisonous dart frog… Photo will be above  – Nikita Barnard

Paige Bird Saving Sea Turtles in Costa Rica – Interview

Paige Bird is a junior in college at Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne. She is a communication major seeking a career in journalism and enjoys playing for the golf team at IPFW and spending her free time with her dog, Lucy.

Why did you choose this program?

I chose this program because I have always wanted to study abroad, but with being a student-athlete it is unrealistic to go away for an entire semester. I have always loved animals and travel so I decided volunteering abroad was the next best thing!

I chose Iko Poran’s Costa Rica Sea Turtle Conservation program because it is very affordable and sounded like a fun way to help animals.
What did your program provider assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

My program advisor helped me prepare to travel to Costa Rica. Being a female and traveling abroad on my own, he helped me feel safe and comfortable to make the journey. He gave me clear and direct instructions of travel and assisting me along the way, what I would be doing in my program, and had a representative meet me at one location and bring me to my final destination.

What is one piece of advice you’d give to someone going on your program?

If I could give a piece of advice to someone going to the program, I would tell them to take advantage of every opportunity they get to experience the culture.

We were allowed quite a bit of free time and my favorite memory of the trip was going away for a weekend with a group of friends and doing excursions. The volunteering was fantastic, but the friends and memories I made will always be something I hold close to my heart.

Amazing Experience with turtles in Costa Rica

Patrols at Night:  you’ll get to See Turtles coming slowly from the Ocean

The patrols at night were fine, you have to walk for four hours on the beach with guides, and if you’re on a lucky night you’ll get to see turtles coming slowly from the ocean, crossing the beach and laying eggs just in front of you. It’s something you want to live in your life, and something you want to protect.
