A team of biologists who are working with volunteers want to show you the charm of turtle’s life.
The working hours are in the night from 20:00 to 8:00, four days per week, this depends on the number of turtles that come ashore, two teams will be split allowing each group to have a day of work, a day off for recovery and two days off in weekends. Some of the activities to be performed are: 1. To find adult turtles and collect their eggs. 2. To move the eggs to a protected place called Vivero. 3. To release newborn baby turtles into the sea. 4. To patrol the beaches at night. 5. To make some reconstruction in the most important turtle camps from the region.
