This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
From Panama, I caught the bus to Costa rica, where I had signed up for a week of turtle conservation work. The project was located on the Caribbean coast of Costa rica, and was quite remote, we had to take a river boat for the last part of it, which was the only form of access. The conservation work involved nightly patrols on the beach where the turtles would lay their eggs in the sand. Because we were competing with poachers that also roamed the beaches, we had to scoop up the eggs and bury them in the sand at the hatchery which we did shifts watching over. The highlight was seeing the baby turtles swim towards the sea!
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
