Video: Turtle Conservation in Costa Rica

On the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, conservationists and volunteers from The Sea Turtle Conservancy are working to save generations of sea turtles.


There are few sights cuter than that of a baby turtle making its way across a beach to the ocean. Founded in 1959, The Sea Turtle Conservancy educates travelers about the importance of saving turtles, and the income generated by their interest has created a tourism industry which proves to locals that sea turtles have more value alive than dead. The work of Sea Turtle Conservancy will ensure there are plenty more sea turtles for future generations of visitors to learn about.
