The responsible group trip in Costa Rica and international solidarity program aims to protect, maintain and promote the growth of marine life through the volunteer program for the conservation of sea turtles on the coast of Costa Rica. In addition, it seeks to raise awareness among the population near the beaches about the protection of endangered species.
The danger of extinction threatens year after year this species, so necessary in the world, only 1 out of 1000 will return to the place where it was born.
In addition to natural predators, there are also the threats that the area presents, such as people who steal the eggs to eat or sell them, as well as abandoned dogs that, due to hunger and thirst, become experts in following the turtles’ tracks.
