Michelle's Turtle Rescue in Costa Rica
If you know me, then you know that I am passionate about the world. I have been going through some life changing times of late, and would like to take this opportunity to be of service. It has been a seed inside me that was planted and has grown to fruition to help the sea turtles in Costa Rica. So, after doing hours of research, I have decided to go to Costa Rica in Feb/Mar. The dates are still to be decided. You will be the first to know
I am so grateful for this opportunity!!
With your help, many turtles will be saved and live long lives. It takes 1000 turtle eggs to produce on adult. The seven sea turtle species that grace our oceans belong to a unique evolutionary lineage that dates back at least 110 million years!! Even before the dinosaurs.
There are several sea turtles in Costa Rica that face extinction.
Olive Ridley - Vulnerable
Leatherback - Critically Endangered
Green Sea Turtle - Endangered
Loggerhead - Endangered
The organisation that I have chosen to partner with is the International Volunteer Headquarters. IVHQ assists developing countries by providing volunteers to work in a variety of jobs such as teaching, medical work, HIV/Aids awareness, women empowerment, sports education, construction work, conservation work, panda conservation, surf and swim school, agricultural work and orphanage assistance. Volunteers can choose to work on projects for various periods of time ranging anywhere from one week to six months. Our partner organizations in these countries will place you in institutions which align your interests and strengths with projects where there is a real need for help and assistance.
