Each year, at least 40 volunteers help our teams, as research assistants, beach cleanup crew, nighttime surveyors, nest protectors, turtle watch helpers and many more tasks. We could not do all the sea turtle research and monitoring we do without volunteers! You are most valuable to us!
If you are on St. Croix and can commit to at least six weeks of time between March and July (one or two days a week), email us to get on our mailing list for volunteer meetings early in the season. We will do training for all positions, find out your interests and fit you in where we can. There may be some opportunities during the rest of the year as well, it depends on needs and current coverage of turtle patrols and other tasks (beach cleanups, native plant plantings, trail maintenance, etc.).
If you are visiting St. Croix, email us your dates and if we have something going on (beach cleanup etc.), we will get in touch about any events that you can participate in for a day or two.
Our six volunteer leatherback research assistant positions are filled for the 2019 season, but if you can help us out short term in a pinch, please let us know!
We hope to hear from you. EMAIL US AT: SandyPoint.Leatherbacks@gmail.com.
Thanks so much!
