Help in program destined to protect the Tora turtle (Dermochelys coriácea), an endangered species. The turtle population located in the Pacific Ocean (from México to Chile) has suffered a particularly severe decline in numbers and most colonies here have disappeared. Various actions have now been set up on the beaches where they nest to monitor and protect them, encouraging community participation and working to raise awareness.
Project work: work in different tasks such as monitoring turtles, gathering data, collecting eggs and patrolling the beach at night.
During hatching season: cleaning of pens, temperature control, control of nests, baby turtle weighing, freeing of baby turtles.
