School Field Trips
Participatory Adventures Abroad
There's no more inspiring and engaging way to teach school students about science than by participating in a hands-on conservation project. Students will work side-by-side with local researchers on sea turtle nesting beaches and foraging areas, as well as learning about the ecology and cultures of some of the most beautiful places in the world.
We work with tour operators with strong safety records and experience organizing student travel to Costa Rica and Mexico. Our trips are ideal for middle schools, high schools, colleges, and community groups.
SEE Turtles Educational Field Trips offer opportunities to learn about:
- Scientific field research & conservation
- New cultures
- Foreign language
Every student field trip booked through SEE Turtles will generate a donation for turtle conservation at no cost to your group!
Costa Rica is one of the safest and most biodiverse countries in the world, ideal for student travel. We work with leatherback nesting beach projects along the Caribbean coast including Estacion Las Tortugas where students can help collect data, protect turtle eggs, and participate in nightly beach patrols.
Thousands of students have traveled to Costa Rica with EcoTeach to patrol nesting beaches, stay with local families, learn about new cultures, and more. Their trips can be tailored to fit your studies and include rainforest hikes, homestays on a working farm, reforestation projects, and visits to indigenous reserves.
Mexico is blessed with dozens of the world's most important sea turtle nesting beaches and foraging areas. Our partners along the Pacific coast conduct in-water scientific monitoring on the Baja California peninsula in places like Magdalena Bay and olive ridley nesting beaches in Todos Santos.
Journey Mexico's Student Journeys Program offers students opportunities to combine turtle conservation with kayaking or surfing. Their all-inclusive programs are safe, experiential, and can be customized to fit your class's needs. We also work with RED Sustainable Tourism for a week-long research program.
