CADIP is running a marine turtle protection program in the small town of La Penita on the Pacific coast of Mexico. International volunteers collaborate with a team of experts and biologists and will be involved in various activities intended to protect the endangered and rare species. There are five species of turtles arriving to this area: Negra (Black Turtle), Golfina (Olive Ridley Turtle), Laud (Leatherback Turtle), Carey (Hawksbill Turtle) and more!

Typical assignments include nightly beach patrols, finding the adult turtles and collecting the eggs, transferring them to a secure place to hatch, and releasing baby turtles back to the ocean. Because of their natural predators, the turtles only go out of the water at night, and this is when most of the work will be carried out. The volunteers will also help collecting statistical data in order to learn about the evolution of the species.

This unique program allows volunteers to
○ gain experience in marine conservation and learn from local experts and biologists;
○ get an up-close look and learn to identify all five species of turtles that frequent the area;
○ witness the amazing sight of turtle nesting and babies hatching;
○ meet local people and learn about their life and culture;
○ explore the popular beach resort area Rincon de Guayabitos close to Puerto Vallarta;
