Are you an animal lover? How about saving turtles in Central America

Do you love animals, the beach, and want to volunteer? Saving turtles and working in a Wild Life Project might be the right thing for you!

saving turtles in Central AmericaCentral America has a very diverse ecosystem and many rich natural resources which makes it a perfect place for  people who love to spend time in nature. At INLEXCA we do work with different local projects where volunteers can take action in a nature reserve, park or an environmental project. Depending on your placement you will have the chance to interact with sea turtles, iguanas and alligators, and other tropical climate species.

In our turtle projects for example, volunteers have the possibility  to get up-close and personal with one of our favorite marine species, working side by side with the experienced conservationists who have made it their life’s mission to protect them. One of the most emotional and rewarding experience volunteers always talk about is watching baby sea turtles emerge from their nests, carefully collecting them into buckets of sand, and helping them make the arduous trek to the beach, where they can be released to the relative safety of their vast ocean home.

Why are sea turtle projects so important?! Sea Turtles are in danger of extinctvolunteer saving turtles in Central Americaion and there are many threats to Central American Sea Turtles, like poaching for human consumption, being struck by boat traffic, getting eaten by domestic animals, being caught accidentally by industrial fisheries, and ingesting trash in oceans and beaches.

Sea turtles are also essential for the ocean and the beach as they leave vital nutrients for dune vegetation through their unhatched nests and leftover egg shells. As for the ocean, sea turtles help to control the jellyfish population, including stinging jellyfish!

Sea turtles have been around for 110 million years, so participating in sea turtle conservation will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Another reason to do an internship abroad is that it could be a great way to acquire skills and knowledge that can be useful in the modern workplace, like learning to be flexible and open minded. You also might develop useful soft skills, such as communication, project management and more which you can test drive within your trip and then implement once you return home.

Of course we have to mention that interning abroad with INLEXCA is a perfect opportunity to study Spanish and practice your language skills. You could take an intensive one to one Spanish class for a few weeks during which you would learn specific language skills you need for your intern position.International Internship with INLEXCA
