Summary

Sea Turtle Conservation Project

The Experience

Due to mostly human induced factors, the lives of these marine turtles are being seriously threatened including the Green Sea Turtles, Flatback, Hawksbill, Olive Ridley and Loggerhead Sea Turtles.

A lot of the turtles are victims of a disease called “Floaters Syndrome”, have been injured by boats and discarded fishing gear or have digested marine debris thinking it was food. The Rehabilitation Centre relies greatly on volunteers and donations to keep the project functional thoughout the years. The facilities include a pre-release holding facility on an island. Join our amazing and talented team now and work towards helping these sea turtles by nurturing them back to health and when they are well, release them back into one of the wonders of the world!

This Is Why

  • Assist with rehabilitating sick and injured sea turtles.
  • Have close encounters with the varied species of Sea Turtles.
  • Educate the public in the interests of sea turtles and help in the promotion of humane and sustainable practices.
  • Fantastic opportunity to view one of the seven wonders of the world- The Great Barrier Reef!

About Fronteering

FRONTEERING aims to arrange volunteer abroad and adventure travel experiences in places less visited and unspoiled. FRONTEERING’s projects help with true good causes in some of the last frontiers. Places where the need is greater, where there is more to lose and much more to gain. Join one of FRONTEERINGS Volunteer Abroad projects and visit these last frontiers while they are yet unspoiled and hopefully through our combined efforts we can keep it that way!

Imagine the sounds of night fading away while in the distance the horizon starts to brighten. You wake up listening to a serenade of thousands of tropical birds and an awakening jungle. Parrots fly overhead with their loud squawks, howler monkeys greet the sun with loud voices while you relax a few more minutes in your jungle hammock! Staring through the jungle canopy you see the blue sky lightening up between the trees.
It is this experience common in some of our volunteer projects and adventure travel trips in Central & South America that got me involved in setting up volunteer projects and adventure travel trips to help with long term sustainability of our last wildernesses and to protect it’s wildlife and the way of life of indigenous communities.
