Annelie volunteered with us on the Turtle Conservation project in January 2022. This is her review.

I had a great time at the turtle rescue center in Camaronal! My biggest fear was that I wouldn’t see any turtles, but on the first evening I was able to be there when around 100 baby turtles were released into the sea 🙂 Working with the turtles (morning and evening routines to observe and capture turtles laying their eggs and collecting the eggs, collecting the hatched turtles and releasing them into the sea) but also the other tasks (clearing the beach of driftwood and plastic, clearing paths, preparing the turtles’ nests, etc.) were strenuous, but all the more fun. All the employees in Camaronal were super helpful and nice – even with last-minute changes and unforeseeable corona restrictions. The same applies to Green Life Volunteers! I received a lot of information and support in advance – from picking me up at the airport to booking my hostel in San José to organizing the project. I felt super comfortable and very well looked after! All in all: a big recommendation (+ there are turtles all year round, so always a reason to register ;))
