Hosted by FSL India, this Sea Turtle Conservation volunteer project helps to protect baby sea turtles in Kundapur, India. 

                             

WHAT WILL I BE DOING ON THIS PROJECT? 

For the past 15 years, the Sea Turtle population in India has been diminishing. India's West Coast in particular, is home to three species of sea turtle, all of which are endangered due to fishing & environmental changes caused by the local population. 

You will be promoting awareness of the local eco-system and addressing other environmental issues. This will involve conducting surveys by gathering and then analysing data. In addition, you will be preparing and giving workshops to school children and those within the fishing community. You will also build hatcheries and temporary information centres, as well as design and create promotional material.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

You will be staying in Kundapur which is a costal town in south-west India. 

You will either be staying in a family's home in the town or in shared accommodation with the other volunteers and group leaders. 

WHAT ABOUT LEISURE TIME? 

There is lots of places near Kundapur in your free time. Kundapur has good train links to MumbaiGoa and Kerala. You can also get the bus to other beaches nearby.
