Sea Turtle Volunteer program in Osa, Costa Rica

"The ideal volunteer cares about the environment and its conservation and is willing to work hard to protect it."

This is the Deal

The mission of Osa conservation is to guarantee the health and ecological success of the sea turtles nesting on nesting on the Osa Peninsula by intergrating conservation, research, and educational outreach programs.
Osa peninsula is named as one of the most "biologically intense" places. With turquoise waters, beautiful remote beaches, cascading waterfalls, and lush rainforest it's no wonder so many different species of animals seek out Osa as a place of refuge. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to help in preserving Osa and saving turtles!


Volunteers with our sea turtle conservation program stay at our main research facilities at the Piro Biological Station. From Piro, volunteers monitor and patrol two beaches, Piro and Pejeperro.
Volunteers are offered comforatble and shared accommodations in one of our three cabins. Each cabin has three bedrooms accommodating four people, a shared bathroom and shower, and a breezeway that can be set up for work or relaxation. In addition to the cabins, the research center is equipped with a laboratory, reference library and dining hall. Limited access to wireless internet is included but please note that we cannot guarantee access as we are in a remote location.
Three delicious meals are served per day, usually variations on local Costa Rican fare. Dietary restric- tions such as vegetarian or vegan can be accommodated, please give advance notice.
