Todos Santos Eco Adventures
Sea Turtle Camp Adventure in Baja
For just a few nights August and September 2013 we are offering volunteers the opportunity to work with local biologists on the Pacific coast of Baja to protect endangered Olive Ridley sea turtles. We’ve chosen nights around the full moon when viewing is optimal for spotting the 100-pound female turtles as they emerge from the ocean, lay their eggs, and then leave the offspring to chance. That’s where you come in. Predators, coastal development and illegal poaching all threaten sea turtle populations throughout the world. At this station you can help combat declining populations by volunteering with biologists as they collect the eggs and relocate them to protective corrals. One night, a lasting impact.
Volunteer in Mexico with Todos Santos Eco Dates: August 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28. September 18, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25.
Cost: $125/night.
