Our internship in Costa Rica allows you to put what you have learned at university to the test in an area of outstanding natural beauty. You will contribute to a professional conservation project devoted to developing and preserving marine ecosystems and endangered animal species like the sea turtle. The internship can also help you academically and professionally by giving you an opportunity to do your own research project and write about it in a journal or even your thesis.
Sea turtle conservation project
The conservation station in Pacuare on the Caribbean east coast of Costa Rica runs a project devoted to the conservation of endangered sea turtles. This project will teach you about conservation methods and allows you to take part in researching this fascinating species and its habitat. You will study a unique marine ecosystem to see how active nature conservation works and how you can help to foster and protect a species. As part of your internship, you will play an active role in this project and work together with other interns from around the world to improve the conservation of sea turtles on the fascinating Atlantic coast of Costa Rica.
This internship focuses on:
During your internship in Pacuare you will be accommodated in a very simple and rustic cabin that you share with 2-3 other interns and also use a communal bathroom. All together there will be 7 cabins in the station that are mostly for volunteers. The camp is supplied with electricity from solar panels, so that the availability may vary according to weather and the time of the day. Moreover the water for washing and showering will not be heated. Every day you will either be served three meals or you will receive the groceries to prepare them yourself. In general the food will consist of local dishes with lots of rice and beans, pasta, salads, vegetables, soups and fruit. You will also have access to clean drinking water.
