Volunteer World Announces Scholarship for Sea Turtle Conservation in Costa Rica

VolunteerWorld.com is offering a scholarship to one recipient to work at a turtle conservation project in Costa Rica

Today, almost all species of sea turtles are classified as endangered, being slaughtered for their skin, shells, meat, and eggs. Sea turtles are at risk of extinction due to over-exploitation and poaching all across the globe.

Volunteer World GmbH is proud to offer a wide array of wildlife internships and animal volunteer opportunities to individuals who want to help preserve these creatures. Now, the volunteer services is proud to announce that with their partner, Tortugas de Pacuare, a once in a lifetime opportunity is being offered in Costa Rica in the form of a scholarship program.

“The scholarship we are offering is called the Sea Turtle Conservation Ambassador Program and will allow one lucky recipient to travel to Costa Rica where they can learn first-hand about conservation of sea turtles alongside some of the most informed and qualified people in the industry,” stated Volunteer World spokesperson Pascal Christiaens. “This is a great program for anyone who wants to enjoy the great outdoors, meet new people, and experience the amazing beauty of Costa Rican beaches.”

Volunteers with Volunteer World have the unique opportunity to take a first-hand role in the entire turtle hatching process. This includes taking shifts patrolling the beaches during the evenings to locate any female turtles that have come to the shore to lay their eggs, and then transport the nests to the hatchery for 24/7 monitoring. Once hatched, volunteers will help the baby sea turtles reach the ocean safely to help ensure maximum levels of survival.

“The tasks experienced in marine biology internships provided by Volunteer World are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to explore and enjoy,” continued Christiaens. “We encourage anyone interested in this unique and amazing opportunity to apply today for our scholarship.”

More information about the scholarship opportunity offered by Volunteer World can be found by visiting the organization’s website or by contacting the professional staff.
