Volunteer in sea turtle conservation in Guatemala- In Guatemala, poaching sea turtle eggs is not illegal, but poachers are required by law to give a certain amount of their eggs to projects that nurse those eggs into baby turtles.
In the natural world, eggs that hatch naturally on the beach are easy prey for birds and other predators. Also due to different circumstances, not all turtles hatch in time to get to the ocean or get lost and exhausted along the way. By nursing, monitoring, and controlling the eggs in the hatchery; the sea turtle conservation project can regulate that nearly 100% of the eggs hatch at the same time.
Once hatched volunteers can place them near the ocean safe from predators on the beach. Once in the ocean, sea turtles start their lives and the females that make it to reproductive adulthood return to the same beach to make a nest and lay eggs. The projects handle species such as Olive Ridley, Leatherback, and Eastern Pacific Green turtles, depending on the season. Family volunteering program abroad- Create rewarding experiences.
