The Green Sea Turtle and the Hawksbill Sea Turtle are in trouble; both species are threatened with extinction. Even though it is illegal to catch these species in Bahamian waters, conservation managers need to work towards protecting their habitats from coastal development and climate change in order to prevent further decline.
On this top-notch conservation research project, you’ll be helping marine biologists find out exactly where the sea turtle habitats are by snorkelling (or boating if you prefer) in the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas. You’ll actually be in the water observing these fascinating creatures, whilst also making a valuable contribution to scientific research as a marine conservation volunteer!
