As our first grassroots, conservation initiative, Littlefeet Environmental has developed 'The Costa Maya Turtle Project;' a project that encompasses 160 kilometers of southern Mexican Caribbean coastline, including the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve and Xcalak National Marine Park, along with over 144,000 hectares of protected reefs within the Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve respectively. We are recruiting volunteers who will become research assistants and take part in our conservation and research programs where they will be given the opportunity to work hands on with critically endangered sea turtle species. We are welcoming passionate, hard-working and motivated individuals (+18 years of age) to assist in our research, submerge themselves in local culture and take off on a one of a kind adventure through sunny Mexico.
The volunteer opportunities that we offer encompass sea turtle conservation, as by protecting this magnificent flagship species, a species who have been evolving for millions of years, we offer an umbrella of protection to the entire marine and coastal ecosystems. We have built this project from the ground up and are taking the Caribbean coast of Mexico by storm. The best part is, our conservation projects truly benefit the communities that they surround, so you can rest assured that your contribution will be significant in the restoration and protection of this species in the future.
To build an environmentally and socially responsible community of organizations and individuals through ecological research, sustainable travel and volunteering while utilizing marine turtles as flagship species to develop volunteer expeditions and initiate collective community involvement.
