To offer memorable experiences of life, participating and helping in the protection and conservation of marine and terrestrial life resources, interacting with local communities.
Turtle Trax is a Costarican volunteer agency (for both national and international participants) that promotes environmental conservation, research, and education, mainly in the Nicoya Peninsula, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Our agency is allied with conservation and scientific organizations that allow our volunteers to have experience in research projects with scientists and community members; this alliance helps us to improve our understanding of coastal ecosystems in order to support a sustainable future for the Southern Nicoya Peninsula.
The objective of our volunteer program is to connect people and the environment; promoting social strategies, and conservation projects that help the development of coastal communities. Likewise, our volunteers, through this experience, can better understand the lifestyle of Costa Ricans. Also, by creating these educational experiences, volunteers would feel encouraged to continue environmental conservation and awareness on a daily basis, regardless of their locations.
Volunteers from all over the world making a difference since 2013
Turtle Trax S.A was created to join conservation efforts towards sea turtle populations in Southern Nicoya Peninsula with our colleagues from the NGO Rescue Center for Endangered Marine Animals (CREMA by its acronym in Spanish), raising funds to ensure the optimal operation and maintenance of sea turtle nesting projects.
Later on, Turtle Trax S.A started to work towards the sustainable development of the surrounding communities and the protection and conservation of natural resources and biological diversity.
