Sea Turtle Internships for College Credit 

We are the only non-profit organization that creates affordable, customized, field-based sea turtle research internship packages for undergraduate and graduate science students from around the world.
Interns go to Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, and other Latin American sites. Interns can earn at least 3 units of university credit. Work at a sea turtle research center on the beach or in a lab, collect data in the field for your paper, and immerse yourself  in the local Latin culture!
