Turtle Conservation

Volunteer with Turtles

Turtle conservation has never been so important now that most sea turtles, freshwater turtles and land turtles are threatened or endangered. Volunteer with turtles on your gap year and you could discover new ways to save these reptiles. Some of the most endangered species include the freshwater red crowned river urtle found in parts of South Asia and the unique vegetarian Central America River Turtle found in areas such as Guatemala.  These species and more all need volunteers like you to help fight threats and create peaceful eco-systems for the next generation of turtles to live and breed.

Volunteer with turtles and help overcome hazards such as habitat loss due to coastal devel-opment, illegal hunting, incidental capture in fishing gear, illegal fishing, climate change and disease caused by run-off from marine pollution. With so much to fight against, one thing is for certain: turtle conservation is never boring. Volunteers are usually asked to get involved with a number of tasks such as caring for the turtles, assisting in hatcheries, maintaining the beach area, feeding the turtles and even working with the local schools giving classes on turtle conservation techniques.
