Join us for a unique volunteer vacation to a remote corner of Nicaragua. Spend a week working to help the critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle while exploring a beautiful mangrove estuary. Padre Ramos Estuary, Nicaragua is one of only two major nesting areas for the critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle in the Eastern Pacific. On this trip, you will work hands on with local conservationists to study and protect hawksbills and explore a beautiful and quiet part of the country.

This is a collaborative trip with SEETurtles.org/Oceanic Society & Alianza Mesoamericana de Ecoturismo. Registration and payments will be through SEETurtles.org and web page for this information is: http://www.seeturtles.org/nicaragua-sea-turtle-volunteer-trip/ 

With local partners, AME willl be running the on-the-ground operations and can answer most of your questions. This tour is in a very interesting part of Nicaragua that most tourists do not see. The beautiful coastal area has a spectacular backdrop of Consiguina Volcano. 

If you enjoy "off the beaten track" travel and are committed to saving endangered species, this is a great trip to consider.
