Designed specifically for teens aged 15-18 years, this fun-filled expedition will be sure to make your summer one to remember!
Join Earthwatch Institute on a 9-day expedition that brings like-minded teens together to learn about the conservation efforts being made to save green and hawksbill sea turtles. You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside researchers by snorkelling and boating in the turquoise waters, exploring mangrove creeks, coral reefs and seagrass beds.
You will help researchers discover where the turtle habitats are through snorkelling and boating activities. Wade through tidal mangrove creeks, sea grass beds, and coral reefs where the turtles eat in their young years. Researchers are working in these areas to discover the reasons why the turtles choose these specific areas. Only by determining where the majority of turtles forage and collecting data on the characteristics of the water depth and temperature can you discover the qualities that make for perfect foraging grounds.

Fieldwork: snorkeling and boating to spot turtles and make habitat measurements. One free day will likely happen during this period
