Untouched beaches, pristine oceans, and beautiful, exotic wildlife are only some of the reasons travelers choose to visit Costa Rica. Every inch of this country is buzzing with diverse wildlife and lush vegetation, and still it isn’t safe from the devastating and harmful effects caused by us, human beings. One such species affected is the beloved sea turtle. Sea Turtle Conservation in Costa Rica.
Six of the seven sea turtles which exist today can be found nesting on the beaches of Costa Rica, however all 6 are in danger of extinction.
Imagine snorkeling and scuba diving without witnessing one of the oldest creatures grazing on grass beds as they slowly swim by and smile your way; Imagine the devastation of the beach dunes if it weren’t for the nutrition of the eggs laid in the sand. This is why sea turtle conservation is especially important.
