Reviews

An incredible 2 months working with turtles
"This isn't a holiday, this is hard work and early mornings but the more you put into the project the more you will get out of it. We had an amazing experiences witnessing turtles laying eggs, relocating nests and releasing baby turtles back into the wild. There is also a strong education programme where local groups and schools visit the project to learn about turtles and help with beach cleans etc. Everyday is different at the project so be prepared for anything. We will stay in touch with the project and help in anyway we can moving forwards."- Dan Benning
