Working with turtles as part of your holiday

If you would like to participate in the project as part of your holiday we can tailor make a programme to fit in with the time you have available.  This option is a good choice for families as there are some activities that are suitable for children as young as 10.   Your holiday could incorporate
·       Night time patrols on foot with Wildlife Rangers to nesting beaches where you will assist with turtles being tagged and measured (must have a good level of fitness)
·       Morning patrols to assist with relocation of nests
·       Assisting with turtle walks, working in the hatchery and helping with hatchling releases

You will be asked to pay a participation fee of €15 per person per day.  We are a non-profit organization and your fee goes directly to turtle conservation and community projects. 

It is possible to participate from July until December.  (Nesting season is from June to October with hatchlings being born from mid August until mid-December).

You can choose to stay with the Rangers depending on availability (at additional cost).  We can assist with holiday arrangements through our travel agency partners.  Please email for more information.
