Sea turtles are currently facing great threats in the coasts of the Pacific Ocean right now: poaching, pollution, lack of available mating partners, among others. The main objective of this project is diminishing the impact of all of those threats through many activities volunteers perform, so that the different endangered Sea Turtle species that nest in this area will be able to sustainably keep on existing in the area. This project is supported by volunteers, local students and residents, and biologists. 

This project is an extremely valuable and enriching experience to any volunteers because it allows them to directly collaborate with the survival of many endangered species, while also acquiring first-hand scientific knowledge, such as turtle nesting habits, scientific data collection methods, identifying different turtle species, among many others. Additionally, you will have the unique chance of immersing yourself in the local Panamanian culture found in the communities you will be staying at. 

In the Pacific coast of Panama, turtles tend to nest from mid-June until February. The turtles that nest at this site are:

  • Olive Ridley Turtles (Lepidochelys olivacea)
  • Hawksbill Turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata)
  • Green or black Turtles (Chelonia mydas)
  • Leatherback Turtles (Dermochelys olivacea)

This is a particularly important nesting site, as four out of the seven known species of Marine Turtles nest in this area.

As a volunteer, you will be guided by a biologist working as a coordinator during the project; you may expect to perform tasks such as:  preparing sand for nurseries, protect female turtles while they lay their eggs, measure turtles, identify the type of turtle species, relocate eggs into the nursery, follow up and take care of eggs within the nursery, release any turtles that hatch to the beach, patrolling nesting areas at night (usually between 22:00 and 00:00), give maintenance to areas where the project is developed (beaches, nursery stations..), giving workshops at local schools and to the general community about the importance of caring for the environment and turtles, among many other tasks that may arise based on specific needs that may arise.

Journée Typique

This volunteer project takes place in the province of Chame, about 2 hours from the capital, Panama City.
Volunteers work all week (Monday to Sunday).
  • A typical day for a volunteer usually starts at 9:00, where they may perform various maintenance, cleaning, and workshop tasks within the community. Many other tasks specific to current nesting conditions may arise.
  • At night, volunteers can also expect to work night patrols on nesting sites; these patrols usually take place between 22:00 and 00:00 depending on the tide.

Activités de Loisir

A rich cultural heritage, beautiful mountains, tropical beaches, historical monuments, and a bustling capital city —Panama has it all, directly within your reach to discover while you volunteer in this exciting country. Panama is a rather small country with a high density of remarkable and memorable locations, which is something you can completely take advantage of, through cheap and accessible transportation, ease of visiting, and a welcoming people. 

Some of the sites most enjoyed by our volunteers are: 
  • Panama city: a modern and bustling city, it's a city that may offer you both big malls and modern architecture, as well as the scenic old city (in Casco Viejo), old monuments (such as the Panamá Viejo colonial area), a natural park filled with sloths and ñeques in the middle of the city (Parque Metropolitano), plenty of museums and seaside spots (such as the Amador area). In the city you can also go visit and discover first-hand how the Panama Canal works. 
  • Portobelo: a city in the Colón province, it has history that dates centuries back to the colonial era, some very picturesque traditions such as the yearly Cristo Negro festival, and it has direct access to beautiful Caribbean beaches and tropical islands (most famous is Isla Grande). 
  • Bocas del Toro: A province in the northwest of Panama, near Costa Rica; its archipelagos and beaches are very famous among tourists, as they provide near pristine sands, near transparent water, a lot of wildlife you can see in some of its islands, and activities such as partying, scuba, or just swimming in the beach.
  • Guna Yala: An indigenous region, it has 365 islands which all have a fair share of white sand and crystal clear water. The Guna people that inhabit this region have a culture that is very tied in to the Ocean and to life in these islands, so coming here will not only allow you to enjoy the beautiful and picturesque beaches on these islands (each island having something particular, such as Isla Estrella, an island filled with Sea Stars or Isla Perro, an island filled with corals and fish), but also to appreciate a unique culture tied to life in these islands.
  • Valle de Antón: A very famous valley with cool weather and lots of nature, you can go hike the famous mountain of La India Dormida (the sleeping indian woman, tied to a well-known local legend), see lots of native flora and fauna, and also enjoy the beautiful scenery.
  • Boquete: Located in the Chiriquí province and known as the "Switzerland of America", it's a small yet very beautiful city in the middle of the mountain, known for its tasty coffee, colourful yearly flower festival (although flowers are an important part of the city any time of year), scenic trekking routes, and all the nature around the city.
