Heart of the Programme
Embarking on the path of turtle conservation is an endeavor that requires unwavering dedication and a passionate spirit. At our programme, you will delve into the rewarding yet challenging work that lies ahead.
The maintenance of the hatchery is essential, given the environmental wear and tear it endures. This safe haven provides a nurturing space for hatchlings, preparing them to embark on their incredible journey despite the challenging elements of their environment.
As an active participant, you will familiarize yourself with the material for turtle talks, empowering yourself to spread the message of turtle conservation far and wide.
You will partake in night patrols, occasionally under a starlit sky, where you will acquire invaluable knowledge by identifying mother turtles, gathering vital data, carefully relocating delicate eggs, and experiencing the awe-inspiring moment when baby turtles are released into their natural habitat.
By participating in beach clean-ups, you actively contribute to the preservation of these sacred nesting grounds, providing the mother turtles a clean and safe environment as they undergo the demanding process of nesting.
Turtle Conservation Season
What to expect?
As part of this immersive programme, you will engage in three workshops designed to deepen your understanding of the local ecosystem and ways to appreciate nature without causing disruption.
Water Safety, Snorkeling & Skin Diving Basics
Emphasizing the importance of safety in enjoying the natural environment, the workshop will cover topics such as buoyancy control, the proper use of equipment like masks and snorkels, and even introduce participants to introductory techniques in skin diving.
Turtle Nesting Habitat
The shoreline ecosystem is the nesting location for sea turtles. Trees impact the soil and sand, and their root network partially prevents beach erosion, providing suitable nesting ground. Many creatures call this habitat home, from small shoreline crabs to large monitor lizards.
Shore Reef Exploration
Using skills learned in Workshop 1, you will learn about the coral reef and its inhabitants, ranging from small barnacles and sea stars to fish of different shapes and colours. The workshop offers an opportunity to explore and learn about the diverse marine life residing in the coral reef.
Rest & Recreational Activities
Your only free time will be in the mornings, recreational activities such as paddleboarding, snorkel tours, scuba diving, hiking, and hammocking are available. Note that availability for snorkeling tours and scuba diving are subject to our dive center's availability.
Raising Awareness Online
As part of the programme, we encourage you to share your experiences and raise awareness about our turtle conservation efforts by creating captivating online content.
Each room comes with two bunk beds, a fan and an attached bathroom to ensure your basic comfort during your stay. It will be your responsibility to help maintain the cleanliness and tidiness of the room. As you will be sharing room with other participants, don't hesitate to socialize with your team mates and make new friends!
