The program

This essential program aims to conserve Costa Rica's precious marine environment, which has been decimated by human activities to the point of endangerment. Sadly, without preservation, much of this area's  incredible marine life may cease to exist.

Volunteers have the unique opportunity to work alongside marine biologists at a field research station in Playa Agujas. This critical project collates scientific data on endangered species and works to reforest coral species and protect and preserve dolphin and whale populations in the Golfo Dulce. A willing volunteer workforce is critical to completing the many tasks and ambitious goals of this program.

Goals of this Project:

  • Assist on projects to improve the environment in which sea turtles, dolphins and whales live, feed, breed and nest
  • On-water monitoring (using kayaks) of coral, dolphin and whale populations with a view to protection and preservation
  • Research these wonderful creatures for a greater understanding of how to ensure their survival
  • Contribute to the conservation of the Sea Turtle populations in Costa Rica
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange between international volunteers and locals.

How you can help

Volunteers play an integral role in achieving the goals of this project. Like many conservation programs funds are greatly lacking and a willing volunteer labor force is essential to its success. Those working on this program will support research and conservation efforts across three focus areas: Coral Reef Monitoring and Reforestation, Dolphin and Whale Monitoring and Sea Turtle Conservation.

Working with recognised national and international marine conservation bodies, volunteers will conduct on-water research in sea kayaks to site and record coral reef species and dolphin and whale activity. On land volunteers will work to improve the marine habitat through reforestation efforts, ensuring beaches are rubbish free and educational activities. Volunteers are fortunate enough to spend one day each week at the Sea Turtle Conservation program, helping to protect and preserve this majestic marine creature.  

This is a wonderful program that has a direct impact on the safety and survival of sea turtle, dolphin and whale populations on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Volunteers will gain unique experience on conservation projects, learn more about the Costa Rican people and culture and travel to beautiful locations.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Kayak the length of Playa Agujas to site and record dolphin and whale population numbers and ecology data (Tuesday and Thursday, weather permitting)
  • Reforestation, beach clean-ups, composting, general maintenance and community outreach as required (Monday and Friday)
  • Sea Turtle Conservation activities (including nightly beach patrols in season and maintaining the hatchery)

Note: Volunteer safety is taken very seriously in and around the water. All water based activities will not be undertaken in inclement weather.

Freizeitaktivitäten

This project is based on stunning Osa Peninsula on Costa Rica's South Pacific coast. Off the beaten tourist track, Osa is a veritable paradise and Costa Rica at its very best! 

The Peninsula is dominated by the Corcovado National Park with its vast array of native wildlife including endangered species and Costa Rica's big cats. Guided jungle adventures can be arranged from Puerto Jiménez. Marine enthusiasts and beach lovers will enjoy the attractions of Drake Bay, Caño Island marine reserve and the surf beaches of Cabo Matapalo and Carate.

Puerto Jiménez is the peninsula's largest town and provides a great base for exploring the region, providing easy access to both the vast expanse of the Parque Nacional Corcovado for hiking and wildlife and the emerald waters of the Golfo Dulce for beaches and surf. Marine Conservation work is based at Agujas.

Immersing volunteers into its unspoilt natural beauty and providing a genuine insight into the 'Tico' way of life; Osa peninsula is the genuine article!
