Volunteer with sea turtles, nesting and foraging habitats and other wildlife in Costa Rica as one of our marine conservation volunteers, and join this TORA CAREY  program in the spectacular Punta Descartes Peninsula-Bahía Salinas on the northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

This valuable conservation project will see you making a positive practical contribution to the protection of beautiful and charming, yet sadly threatened sea turtle species and their habitas in one of the geologically oldest and remote parts in COSTA RICA.


We are always happy to welcome motivated people who are willing to help us.

A wide array of tasks is available, so if you are interested please contact us to discuss your skills and your options within Tora Carey Project.

Community involvement and education are two of the main pillars for wildlife conservation. This is why community volunteers play a very important role inside the project, helping to reach those from the communities and educating the future generations.


Community and  volunteers are directly  involved with the field team members but also assisting on the outreach and educational programes, getting a full cultural and adventurous experience.

You will connect the field work with the rest of the community while learning pure conservation!
