Ocean Spirits Leatherback Sea Turtle Volunteer Project, Grenada
Organisation: WorkingAbroad Projects
Research Assistant volunteers will gain hands-on field experience with the world’s largest sea turtle, directly help the reduction of illegal egg poaching activities, contribute to the preservation of Grenada’s turtles through local educational events and help to increase community participation.
Take part in night patrols, flipper tagging and nest excavations with the largest sea turtle in the world. Meet and make new friends with volunteers from all over the world and alongside warm and helpful local staff from Grenada. Combine this trip with our Reef Buddy programme on Grenada’s sister isle of Carriacou.
Known as the Spice Isle because of its high production of nutmeg, Grenada is a small volcanic island, 21 miles by 12 with a population of 90,000. It has many beaches along its indented coastline, lush rainforest in the interior and remains one of the least spoilt of the Caribbean islands. Living in the north east part of the island, the area is a windswept piece of paradise!
