To assist with a turtle project in Jiquitillo, 2.5 hours north of Chinandega. This is a small low key village with deserted clean beaches with nice surfing. Volunteers are needed from OCT-NOV to gather eggs. Volunteers who decide to stay 2 weeks or more will be awarded with cheap housing, great food and surfboards. Volunteers are also needed to assist with a preschool program and kids club. call 011-505-879-1795 or contact. During the months of October and November sea turtles come ashore here to lay their eggs. If you walk north up the beach a little in the evenings you may be lucky enough to see them.
Currently the local environmental group SELVA is starting a hatchery and welcomes volunteers to help with their efforts in protecting the sea turtles. If you are interested in this please contact us for further information.
