The Reserve is active all-year round, engaged in active research, data accumulation, species monitoring, and community education and outreach programs.

Note to Prospective Volunteers: TURTLE SEASON IS JULY THROUGH DECEMBER, with September and October being the best months to have a chance of seeing turtles nesting on the beach.  

However, turtle “off-season” offers much for volunteers as well, with birding, caimans, butterflies, river otters, and multitudes of other species that inhabit this region of Costa Rica.  There is always something happening here!
