Lisa and Brenna (Mum and Daughter) – Ostional Turtle Conservation Internship. Aged: 17 (Brenna) and Lisa (55). Lisa’s and Brenna’s Review AND Video! My daughter and I had a wonderful time volunteering with Greenlife in Costa Rica as Turtle Conservation Interns. We received outstanding support via email as we explored and prepared for this trip, were well taken care of getting us from the airport in Costa Rica to our volunteer site, and had a very rewarding experience at our destination site.Unlike other organizations we’ve experienced that advertise a “volunteering” focus, this one actually sent us to a project that indeed needed and wanted volunteers for real work. We stayed with a wonderful Costa Rican family, enjoyed the beaches and turtles and Pura Vida lifestyle, and contributed much appreciated work. It was the best!
Why Choose GLV?
We offer VERY LOW FEES to volunteer on our projects. Green Life Volunteers’ mission is to offer your real projects in which you only pay what is really needed for food and accommodation costs. A small part of your fee goes to GLV’s staff and services of setting up the volunteer project for you (organizational fees). The rest goes to the host family, project, and cause. Our projects really make a difference for communities, people and animals.
