Playa Tortuga Conservation Volunteer Project, Costa Rica

Volunteer in Costa Rica and live and work in a biological research station and take part in sea turtle, butterfly, caiman, crocodile, tree boa and mammal research and environmental education.

Live in tropical rainforest nature reserve teeming with wildlife, from sea turtles that nest on the adjacent beach to tree boas, howler and capuchin monkeys, to river otters and beautiful birds and butterflies.  Set camera craps to spot elusive ocelots at night time and wade through rivers to catch and tag caimans. Work alongside friendly staff and learn about the amazing biodiversity that Costa Rica has to offer!

Playa Tortuga is located just 3.5 hours from San Jose, on the Southern Pacific Coast Of Costa Rica. The Reserve offers an ideal environment for researchers and volunteers.  It is located in the tropical rainforest and just outside of Marino Ballena National Park.  This park is named after the humpback whales that migrate there throughout the year. This whole region offers miles of deserted beaches, mangrove forests and coral reefs.
