  • Full-Time
Turtle Foundation (TF) has been working in Cape Verde, West Africa since 2008 protecting Loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) from the threat of poaching. The Cape Verde nesting population is the third largest population for Loggerhead turtles in the world after the nesting populations of Oman and Southeast Florida.
These days we operate 5 remote beach camps around Boa Vista, which monitor some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. TF works with local communities to encourage participation and long-term conservation. We rely upon having a diverse and passionate mix of national and international volunteers and local rangers who monitor and protect the beaches during the nesting season.
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help on turtle project in Africa. The roles are required throughout the season (between June 15th and 31st October).
