Posted by Laura Stark on Dec 9th, 2016When i volunteered at Kosgoda 9 years ago... it was just starting to become something bigger. These days with all the press and videos i see i know that it is doing an excellent job in turtle conversation. I had so much fun working here and at the local community school. Teaching English to children and adults and then playing with turtles... your day doesn't get much better than that. Dudley and his family are so welcoming and friendly, every volunteer i met during my time had a great experience. I would highly recommend volunteering here for a totally different experience, beautiful sunsets, TURTLES and obviously the wonderful country and people. :) :) :)
Posted by Tim Watmuff on Mar 24th, 2017Just want to say a big thank you to all at KSTCP for the wonderful 2 weeks I had there in March 2017. All project staff were friendly, open and obviously committed to the project. The accommodation was as described, "basic", but clean and more than adequate.
In my 2 weeks I saw, and or did, the full cycle; eggs being laid by a large Green Turtle; eggs being re-buried in the hatchery; hatchlings being born and hatchlings being released. Conducting tours around the project explaining what visitors were seeing forced me to learn a lot about these incredible creatures. I would seriously recommend the project to other volunteers.
One last thank you ... to all the other volunteers who were there at the same time as me.. the experience would not have been as good without you all.
