Karumbé has been monitoring this foraging and developmental area of juvenile Green Turtles (Chelonia mydas) for more than 13 years. At this site, the volunteers will carry out research and conservation activities, getting quite in touch with the fishing community where the field station is settled. Volunteers will be working shoulder to shoulder with the two researchers who will be coordinating the fieldwork, getting involved in all tasks included in the project work. It is not necessary to speak Spanish; however we encourage candidates to know at least the basics.
