Costa Rica

La Tortuga Felíz: Volunteer in what is known as the Amazon of Costa Rica in the lush mangroves accessible only by motorboat for La Tortuga Felíz, a conservation program to protect sea turtles.  Run solely by volunteers, the contribution and participation of volunteers helps to fund the conservation of these glorious animals.  Poachers, fishing nets, pollution and other threats are the cause of an alarming decline in turtles hatching on this Caribbean beach.  In particular the 9 km section of beach covered by the volunteer turtle conservation program is in danger.  La Tortuga Felíz is an affordable volunteer program and an absolutely unforgettable experience.  To learn more about volunteering, please visit La Tortuga's website
