Wondering where you can volunteer abroad to work with sea turtles? Mexico it is! Live on a beach and save the ocean by becoming a sea turtle conservation volunteer. Sea turtles play an important role in the marine ecosystem but are under threat in Mexico due to poaching, coastal erosion, and plastic pollution.
On this project, you’ll help protect sea turtles by identifying and relocating turtle nests to a protected area. This ensures the survival of the nests and once the eggs have hatched, you can release the hatchlings and watch them waddle towards freedom!
As a sea turtle conservation volunteer, you’ll also take part in biodiversity studies to monitor the presence and condition of local wildlife. This is essential data from which conservation decisions can be made. Furthermore, you’ll have the opportunity to work with crocodiles, aid in beach clean ups, and participate in environmental outreach and education. There are lots of ways to help save the ocean in our Marine Conservation Programs in Mexico.
