Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Sea Turtle & Rainforest Conservation Program Ecuador



We were founded in 2019 with the hope of contributing to conserve the diverse and fragile ecosystems of the Galera Peninsula, San Francisco, in the province of Esmeraldas, Ecuador. Our main goal is to work with children and young people, through workshops and activities that raise awareness about the importance of respecting all beings of Nature, to protect the surrounding forests and beaches. In recent years, we have been working with other local organizations to strengthen sustainable enterprises: regenerative agriculture, community tourism, sea turtle rescue, bio-construction, recovery of ancestral knowledge, among others, with the aim of building a development model in balance with nature.
