About

Midnight. A turtle nests on a moonlit beach. Researchers measure her and count eggs. The night air is quiet, save for the sounds of nearby howler monkeys. All that’s missing is you.

Spend several weeks nesting in Costa Rica, the ultimate place to study endangered sea turtles. Work on the beaches of Tortuguero, the largest green turtle nesting site in the Western Hemisphere. Your part in this turtle operation is assistant researcher. Work alongside biologists, measuring the turtles’ carapace and flippers. Count eggs and diagram nests. Record every step they take. By day, it’s turtle studies: behavior, mating patterns, conservation. By nightfall, it’s back to the beach for hands-on field work. On this adventure, boredom is extinct.
