THEN WHY NOT BECOME A VOLUNTEER FOR THE TURTLE FOUNDATION? READ WHAT FORMER VOLUNTEERS WROTE ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE:
“At the end of May this year when my degree course was complete, I had a choice to make; stay in my comfy-but-boring office job, or do something out of the ordinary. My degree was in Biology and I have always loved animals (especially reptiles) so the turtle project in Cape Verde looked like a good fit for me. This turned out to be, unequivocally, the best decision I have ever made, and something I would recommend to anyone …” (James Barnes, UK)
”Most people just exist, dreaming of crazy adventure but never doing anything about it – … whilst you have a breath in your body and can handle tiring exercise five hours per evening – then you’d be doing yourself and Your life a great favour by contacting The Turtle Foundation and committing to volunteering your holiday time next summer to travelling to Boa Vista and experiencing something you really don’t find in your daily life!! Heck, some of us gave up two months of our lives for some of the most intense, exciting and beautiful experiences of our lives. . . . the culture and craziness of the work with the other volunteers can’t help but entice anybody brave enough to jump in and be part of something very special.” (Martin Sansone, UK)
“Ich liege mitten in der Nacht am Strand im weißen, warmen Sand, irgendwo auf dieser faszinierenden Insel Boavista, mit ihrer unglaublichen Landschaft, die anders ist als alles, was ich zuvor gesehen habe. Ich schaue Richtung Meer, wo die Wellen unaufhörlich rauschen, betrachte den üppigen Sternenhimmel und bin zufrieden. Neben mir nistet eine unechte Karettschildkröte, Caretta caretta, der Grund warum ich hier bin.” (Astrid Mittelstaedt, Deutschland)
