Sea Turtle Conservation Internship in Sal Island, Cabo Verde
Sustainable Development Goals
project Biodiversity is looking for candidates to join our team as Field Assistants, from June until October, for the 2022 Loggerhead nesting season in Sal Island, Cabo Verde. We need passionate, driven individuals who wish to help us protect this incredible species in its native habitat.
Loggerhead nesting season runs from June to October, with hatchlings emerging from mid-August to late December. Throughout the season the team of Project Biodiversity is made up of local and international assistants and volunteers. Our work involves patrolling beaches (night and morning) monitoring nesting and to deter hunting, collecting data, conducting research, collaborating with tourists and local businesses, operating hatcheries, running education and outreach activities, and organizing beach clean. Although there is a wide scope of activities within the project, protection of nesting turtles continues to be the main focus, and whilst this can be stressful and tiring, it is highly rewarding.
