Details of the day-to-day life on the project:
Volunteers will spend their time helping build the turtle image database; by taking images of turtles during snorkel surveys, individual turtles can be identified and their movements around the islands mapped. This data is vital to the development of an effective management plan for sea turtle conservation. Volunteers will also participate in night patrols, helping mother sea turtles lay their eggs and safely relocate them to a hatchery to protect them from poaching.
In addition to what's stated in the daily day-to-day life, volunteers will also help during the team's awareness talks and weekly beach cleanups.
