Travel to Oaxaca for the conservation

Join us to one of the most unique places in all of Mexico, the Oaxaca Coast, where the diversity of cultures, landscapes, fauna and flora offer you an exciting experience. In the middle of this tropical paradise, there are many community projects focused on making you live the most authentic Mexico, where nature and the rural world cannot be missing.

Get to know them with us:

TARTARUKUS

To fund community conservation projects, we engage people in activities led by local groups on the coast of Oaxaca, Mexico, offering volunteer experiences for the conservation of sea turtles and endangered species for 11 days each month, bringing together groups of people who intend to give a little of their time to improve biodiversity protection and rural development.

We also work to disseminate community projects dedicated to ecotourism, as well as develop projects with the communities to strengthen conservation activities. One of our most outstanding projects is the creation of environmental brigades with children from the communities of Ventanilla and Escobilla.


Our goal is to make conservation a quality livelihood for people living in rural places of great ecological value.

If you are looking to get to know them traveling in the hands of someone who knows the coast and its people well and together with a group of travelers with the same initiative, we have developed the 11 days for conservation program. For 11 days, everything will be organized so that you can experience nature in the same way that the communities do, actively participating in the protection of wildlife and natural areas.

We share with you some of the reviews that have left us in Volunteerworld: (Reviews Volunteer World)

Quand vous arrivez à La Ventanilla, Beatriz vous présente aux personnes de la communauté, toutes chaleureuses et bienveillantes. Les activités que Beatriz a mise en place sont toujours juste de sens pour protéger ce bel environnement et les espèces qui y vivent. Je n’ai jamais vu un lieu aussi rempli de vie que la lagune! Sortir en barque la nuit tombée avec des biologistes pour répertorier les crocodiles ou patrouiller sur la plage pour récolter et mettre à l’abris les nids des tortues c’est incroyable, on en apprend des choses grâce à Tartarukus !!

Beatriz is doing a wonderful job running a complex and worthwhile program to help protect the turtles. Everything was organised well with a warm and friendly team. It was awesome to be able to help the baby turtles have a greater chance of surviving. Also incredible to see the mothers lay eggs and be there to make sure none were taken by poachers.

It was a real honour being present as the females released their eggs and we conserved them for safe keeping and to prepare new nest for incubation in the hatchery. We had various night patrols with fabulous local guides and also visited the nature reserve with Iguana, Crocodile and deer (which I loved).
The lovely ladies, who were also our guides on some nights, cooked lunch and dinner for us and excelled as the food was varied and delicious. I am a vegan and coeliac so they had their work cut out. 🙂 On one of the days; we went to the jungle and were met with more lovely guides and had a day strolling through the jungle. I very much hope to return again and be a part of this warmhearted, caring family again.

 Muy enriquecedor. Ha sido maravilloso poder contemplar la naturaleza de México y ayudar en su conservación y divulgación para su mejora. Voluntariado lleno de aventuras y nuevos aprendizajes, que hace que las personas den lo mejor de sí mismas para una muy buena causa.
