This volunteer project is organized by Ecological Research Society (EKAD) in Turkey and it is a minimum 15 days volunteer program designed with the aim of conservation of two sea turtle species namely Caretta Caretta (loggerhead sea turtle) and Chelonia Mydas (green sea turtle) living in Mediterranean Sea. During the project; volunteers will be divided into two types of study which are educational practices and field surveys while they will be monitoring the sea turtles in Belek/ Antalya, the second largest nesting area of sea turtles in the world. Through this experience, volunteers will have a great opportunity to get to know better and protect the endangered species while they will be meeting with other people who also love the nature. Volunteers can choose one of the 15-days periods starting from June 15, 2016 and last period is ended at September 15, 2016.


The participation cost for a single 15-day period is 350 Euros including food, accomodation and travel costs. Also one daily excursion is included in volunteer’s payment to the naturally beautiful and historical places around Antalya such as Perge, Termessos, Aspendos, Phaselis, Olympos, Side, Kurşunlu Waterfalls, River Manavgat and Köprülü Canyon or an activity such as rafting or hiking. Volunteers can have 50% discounts each for their additional 15-day periods.
