Train poachers to be nature guides in Costa Rica
by ASVO
 
Nest poaching is rife in Costa Rica, and many communities see turtle egg as as a source of income. Within a small community on the central pacific coast, where we have a research station, we see the potential in training local youths to become turtle patrol leaders, and to offer them an alternative income. Not only will this offer a salary for otherwise underprivileged families, but this program with have an educational impact on the community, raising awareness about environmental issues. project reportread updates from the field
Grass Roots Sea Turtle Conservation, Costa Rica
by ASVO
 
This projects aims to protect and rescue 100% of the sea turtle nests of Playa Buenavista in Costa Rica, by building a hatchery in order to relocate and monitor nests. When the eggs hatch, babies can be released in a controlled environment and scientific data can be taken to study turtle nesting behaviour in this area. This will enable us to ensure a high survival rate of the endangered sea turtle. project reportread updates from the field
