Anybody can volunteer, (unless you are really unpleasant :) please do not apply) somewhat unpleasant is great though.

* Be willing to work, get dirty or wet.
* Keep a positive attitude (even though the Sea Turtles are going extinct)
* Not necessary to be fit or able to swim but would be good. (a lot of people get fit here pretty fast anyway)
* Any age is ok, well maybe like 14 and above, but also families are welcome
* Be ready to make the most of your trip

Basically we all live on site at the project.

it covers a donation and support for this environmental project;
it covers extras like coffee and tea all day, a kitchen, movies, motorbike, laundry, cats, whatever;
it covers the boat rides to go and look for eggs each morning;

We charge one fee per night, then all else is provided for everybody to be comfortable.
