The accommodation will be at the camp of Lacacao and the participation cost will be reduced from the normal volunteer fees to help with the longevity of their stay.

Interns are expected to get involved in all different areas of work in Lacacao but the main duties will be the morning patrols. You will be working closely with the nest- and hatchery manager.
