The aim of this project is to assist a government organization on the Pacific Coast of Guatemala with beach conservation and seasonal sea turtle protection programs. During my four weeks in Guatemala, we will be assisting in habitat conservation efforts and planting mangroves, educational programs in local schools and Teaching English to the local community. In May, we work on caring for the sick and injured turtles and improving the facilities. This includes painting the hatcheries and getting them ready to take care of the collected eggs.
