Environmental protection in Ecuador

Environmental protection in Ecuador

The marine life protection project is located on the Pacific coast of Ecuador, in Las Tunas, Manabí province, a popular destination for sustainable and responsible travel. The project in sustainable tourism aims to protect the turtles that nest on these beaches, as well as ensure the conservation of local biodiversity (forest, beach, etc.). Communities and international volunteers work together to ensure the protection of the wildlife and flora in this coastal region.

This environmental protection mission is open to all profiles and can be particularly interesting for families and nature lovers.

Volunteers’ tasks during their sustainable and responsible trip include:

  • Monitoring and controlling nests and injured turtles.
  • Supporting the efforts of local communities to protect the natural environment (beach and river clean-ups)
  • Participating in reforestation activities in the surrounding areas.
  • Engaging in permaculture practices and developing recycling systems.
  • Interacting with local communities and raising awareness during your sustainable and responsible trip.

Recommendations for working with animals

– Remember that all activities are necessary for the welfare of the animals and the rescue center. In addition, the more involved you become in your work, the more responsibility you will be assigned once you have reached a certain level of trust with the turtles and workers.

– Please check with your local doctor about any vaccinations you may need before traveling to Ecuador, however, rabies and tetanus vaccinations are recommended.

This project is for animal lovers who are not afraid to get their hands dirty!
