Sea Turtle Conservancy

Tortuguero
Limon , Costa Rica http://www.conserveturtles.org/
(800) 678-7853

The Sea Turtle Conservancy in northeast Costa Rica is the oldest turtle research facility in the world. Founded in 1959 by Dr. Archie Carr in an effort to save the species from extinction, the conservancy now invites tourists to visit the wildlife refuge (adjacent to Tortuguero National Park) and take part in the mission. Duties include observing the nesting habits of hawksbill and leatherback sea turtles and recording the data, usually at night. The refuge has three accommodation options—shared dorms, private bedrooms, and private eco-lodges—and fees also include three daily meals of authentic Costa Rican cuisine.
