Turtle Trax!

Turtle Trax S.A. is a company in partnership with CREMA (https://www.cremacr.org) which manage all International and National volunteers who wish to work on one of the four CREMA’s sea turtle conservation projects. 

We engage with local communities and promote eco-turisms to achive our main goal which is sea turtle conservation.  Over the last 8 years, volunteers, by joining our team have learnt about sea turtles and their biology, protected thousands of their nests from depredation and poaching, and contributed to the survival of vulnerable species by releasing hatclings back into the ocean. Volunteers become part of the research team, work closely with sea turtles and will enjoy beatuful beaches and experience Costa Rican culture and lifestyle.

The funds generated through these programes help provide an income for local community members and serve sustain CREMA’s various sea turtle conservation projects along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.  As a future volunteer, your contributions will also build a sense of awareness among the local population regarding the importance and benefits that come from protecting these animals.  Participants become immersed in the conservation project and the local culture, and speaking Spanish, while helpful, is certainly not a necessity (though you’ll have plenty of opportunity to practice!).
