BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE OSA

THE STORY:

Over the last two years our beach hatchery has helped protect over 16,000 sea turtle hatchlings by relocating nests. Four of the seven remaining sea turtle species on Earth visit the Osa every year to nest.

The goal of our sea turtle conservation program is to guarantee the health and ecological success of the sea turtles nesting on the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica, through conservation, research, and educational outreach. With the help of volunteers we have protected more than 16,000 sea turtle hatchlings over the last two nesting seasons and carried out a number of educational projects to raise local awareness about the importance of conservation on the Osa Peninsula. While a portion of the project is funded by the program fees of volunteers, there are many other costs associated with running this conservation program. Donations are used to fund Costa Rican field coordinator salaries, a scientific and volunteer coordinator, equipment necessary for gathering scientific data such as GPS units, headlamps, waterproof notebooks and measuring tapes, and transportation costs associated with protecting 18 kilometers of sea turtle nesting beach.

A 30$ gift pays for one local student’s visit to our biological field station in the Osa to participate in hands-on experiential learning programs
