This coming season Naucrates team will work on finding answers to Does the amount of marine debris stranded on the beach affect the sea turtle nesting ground?
While evaluating, we will involve guest, volunteers, children, tourists in beach cleaning events and collecting marine debris. A station will be set up near Naucrates camp, where the evaluation of the amount of debris will be recorded and where we will create a Turtle Sculpture of collected items.
The sculpture will be a big adult, turtle mother, then children will make up to 100 baby turtles, which represent the number of eggs laid in one nest!
Each child that visits or joins volunteering with us can make one, until we reach 100. The sculpture will be placed in the Community Conservation Center at Lions village in memory of Pipap, our beloved friend and long term staff member.
Our conservation project is also open for families who want to come and enjoy a bit of a different holiday with lots of learning and amazing nature. Families can join us for 1 week or longer with special rates. Email us for more details bookings (at) naucrates.org
“We spent a week with our family at the project living in the bungalow, eating with all the volunteers and of course the walks at the beach and the observation were a great experience. During the turtle-lesson, we learned many things about turtles and their behavior. The visit to the museum was very interesting too. At the beginning of the week we were a bit disappointed as we heard that we most probably wouldn’t see any turtles. It was a great week with great people and an unforgettable experience! Thanks!” Stephanie, 2017
