You can help sea turtles survive!

Nestled on Costa Rica's Caribbean coast, Pacuare Reserve hosts the most important nesting beach in Costa Rica for vulnerable leatherback sea turtles. Pacuare's 2000 acres of tropical forest and surrounding canals are rich in wildlife, including hundreds of animal species: monkeys, sloths, toucans, jaguars and other incredible fauna. Green and hawksbill sea turtles also nest there.

Each night of nesting season, researchers and students are out walking the beach in search of sea turtles. These dedicated volunteers from Costa Rica and around the world help ensure the turtles' nests have a chance at survival. Without their protection efforts, more than 80% of sea turtle nests are lost to illegal harvest.

You can change the tide by supporting researchers and students at Pacuare to protect hundreds of nesting sea turtles in 2019, and give thousands of hatchlings a safe start. We need your support.
