I was on the islands 22 days during the turtle breeding season. The most remarkable moments were the rescue of four turtles lost in the interior of the island. Watching the eggs hatch and watching the small turtles walk from the beach to the sea before starting their journey in the oceans is a sensational experience.
I disconnected from society to get in touch with nature in its purest form. I performed tasks specific to a camp, laughed and got emotional (…) Volunteering is not “working for free”. What you receive ends up being more than what we give (..) and what I received stays for life!
My experience working with the Biosphere was very positive. (…) At a professional level it was an asset that propelled me to new opportunities. On a personal level it was an opportunity to grow, get to know me and test me (…).
I started working for the Biosphere in September 2018 (…) to help with the work of sea turtles (…) and with sea birds and geckos. (…) I keep good memories of the different experiences (…) I was able to quickly learn and fully contribute to the different tasks that we had to do, I think to return quickly to a new volunteer.
