Weʼre raising £3,000 to Help fund me to educate locals and conserve turtles and their eggs along the historic beaches of Costa Rica
- San José, San José Province, Costa Rica
- Animals and pets

- 57 days to go
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
I want to educate locals and visitors to the country about the dropping numbers of sea turtles. They are an endangered species due to poaching, and the taking off eggs from the beaches for medicines and turtles for their shells and skin.
I will be building fences and creating more areas for the turtles along the beach that humans cannot access and I will be tagging hatchlings, in order to observe numbers of sea turtles and see if they come back to lay eggs themselves. I will also be watch the adult turtles come onto the beach to lay their eggs, as security against people stealing the eggs afterwards.
