Qué harás

We will set out on boat to a preapproved GPS coordinate to deploy our nets. You will help the staff, by jumping into the water with your snorkle, to check the nets are ok. ( Optional)
Our participants will then wait on the beach for any sign of a turtle!
Once a sea turtle is caught the biologist will untangle them from the net and bring them into the boat for transport to the beach. Once at the beach we begin our monitoring.
We take the weight of the turtle, the biometrics (weight, size of the carapace, plastron, and tail), tag them with metal tags (or record existing tag numbers), take a tissue sample (if no pre-existing tags), and record any injuries or abnormalities.
Each sea turtle, depending on the size, takes 10-30 minutes to complete the needed monitoring.
The nets are deployed for 6 hours each ocean day
Participants will receive training and information on all data collection.
Other things to note
If you have a snorkle and mask please bring it.
Please remember that this is a research project, and there are days when we do not catch turtles. Although disappointing, it is also important data.

Eines der schönsten Erlebnisse auf unserer Costa Rica Tour! Wir konnten an diesem Tag sehr viel über Schildkröten lernen und schätzen jetzt noch mehr, was für eine tolle und wichtige Arbeit hier tagtäglich geleistet wird! Absolut empfehlenswert!

You will take a boat and go to the beautiful beach with no buildings nearby. Then Last will cast a nest from the boat and you will wait at the beach until the turtle will be caught in the net. The day we did the activities, we didn't have to help them a lot since there was an extra male biologist joined. But the ocean has no waves like mirror. I heard a lot of Macau's cry. One of the most beautiful beaches I have been. Thanks for accommodating the day.

We loved this experience!! My teen is an aspiring marine biologist and she learned so much! The biologist and her research assistants were great. We highly recommend LAST!

A fantastic experience for all the family. If you have kids interested in animals and conservation, this will stay with them. We had an amazing day, catching and "processing" 5 turtles. We were involved in all the procedures - my children are 9 and 13 and had the chance to carry, measure and weigh the turtles. They also recorded the data and even named one of the turtles. We also had a delicious lunch on the shore, when we had the time between turtle catches! We all learnt a lot about not only turtles, but other marine life and habitats. It was well worth the money as it all goes to the charity and I really recommend the experience. I agree that chairs would be a thoughtful addition - as a family we had a couple of hammocks, but would have appreciated a chair for the rest of us.

This experience was unbelievable. We we're lucky and caught 5 sea turtles. We were able to participate in the data collection and handling of the sea turtles. We learned so much! When we weren't handling the turtles we could hang out on the beach and snorkel. Definitely would recommend bringing a chair or hammock to hang out in.

We loved it. I wanted to learn about, see and touch sea turtles. That's what we did, with a knowledgeable environmental biologist and international volunteers. One turtle was brought in early in the day. We helped with carrying and measuring her. The biologist pointed out interesting characteristics and answered all questions. We spent the day on the beach, in the shade of a tree. Conversation was fun, informative and engaging. One suggestion: apply bug repellant. I got a million sand flea bites that began itching later. I didn't feel them at the time. It's an unique experience and an important project. We highly recommend it.
