Review Volunteer Amanda Wong in Costa Rica Sea Turtle Conservation program

I really enjoyed my time at the sea turtle program. It was rewarding, educational and inspiring to see both mother turtles laying eggs and baby turtles hatching out of their nests. The local area is a small community and you get to know a lot of people in the area in a short amount of time. I really enjoyed the days when we did a day-time nest digging (exhumation), which is when everyone can come and see baby turtles run down the beach to the sea that the volunteers have rescued from their nests. I took this opportunity to talk to the crowds about the importance of the work we're doing for sea turtle conservation, solicit donations, educate them on the work ABV does for sea turtle survival and explain sea turtle life cycles and physiology to all who were there. I also answered a lot of questions about sea turtles which further enhanced their experiences as they could learn and see these amazing creatures start their lives.
