Asociacion Latin American Sea Turtles - LAST

Our vision is to realize a future where all inhabitants of the Costa Rican coasts, human and sea turtle alike, can live together in balance; where healthy populations of sea turtles fulfill their ecological roles and economic potential; and critical natural habitats are sustainably managed.
Protect endangered sea turtles in Costa Rica
 
This project will increase the survival of leatherback, endangered green turtle and critically endangered hawksbill turtle during nesting season at Pacuare beach. LAST staff and local community members in alliance with international and national volunteers will patrol the beach at night to protect around 200 - 500 nests and ensure a safe incubation of the eggs. Monitoring, investigation and local community involvement are our tools to reduce poaching and the illegal trade of turtle products!
Provide Rehab Care for Sea Turtles in Osa
 
This project aims to attend to 100% of green, hawksbill and olive ridley turtles that arrive at the rescue center with health problems or injuries by improving its facilities. With the necessary medical and technical equipment, sea turtles get the chance of rehabilitation and will be re-released into their natural environment after a successful treatment. Collected scientific data about health status and threats will improve long term conservation and survival of the endangered species. project reportread updates from the field
