During our stay in Rio Oro many things were eye opening. First off, working with sea turtles is an amazing thing that has to be expirienced first hand. During night patroll one may be very tired but as soon as a turtle or nest is spotted the long walk on the beach is well worth it. Secound, being educated about the hardships the turtle population is facing is devestating. Poaching and over fishing is leaving these creatures with many problems. Working alongside the people in Rio Oro was very satisfying in knowing that we were helping atleast some of the population. This location is very remote so be prepared for quiet days in order to save your energy for the night time.
