About this cause

About our cause

In just under a year myself and some of my fellow students from Ysgol Eirias in North Wales will be taking part in an expedition to Costa Rica for two weeks. We will spend time contributing to an environmental project which aims to preserve the turtle population. Turtle Trax works to monitor and protect the sea turtles around the coast line of the southern part of the Nicoya peninsula. They have a variety of projects, of which we will be working on Playa Caletas, one of the remoter spots. Playa Caletas is a nesting site for mainly Olive Ridley turtles but also green turtles and leatherbacks later on in the season. During the time we are there we should be lucky enough to see a turtle laying and possibly even baby turtles hatching from their nests. We will be taught the basic skills for monitoring the turtles and collecting the nests so as to be able to help out with this essential work protecting the sea turtles. Other tasks will include litter picking and clearing the beach as part of Project Aware (PADI) and general maintenance of the camp and hatchery. Our expedition has been designed to develop us as young adults, improving key skills such as communication, problem solving and leadership as well as teaching us to travel safely and have an in depth understanding of other cultures. We will be preparing for the expedition in the months leading up to it. Part of this preparation includes raising the £2795 to get us there which will challenge our commitment and organisation as well as showcasing some entrepreneurial spirit!
