Experience the wonder of the gray whales, on this 5-day expedition in scenic Magdalena Bay on the Pacific coast of the Baja California peninsula where they come to mate and give birth to their calves before returning north towards the Bering Sea. You will also take part in a sea turtle conservation project recognized around the world as a model for community based conservation. From your secluded base camp on a tiny shell island, learn about the importance of the green sea turtle's survival and the role local fishermen play in the species' recovery, before heading out in pangas to capture and release turtles after recording vital data.
Every once in a while we find a beautiful place that's so completely invested in bettering their local community, that its next impossible to put their efforts into one singular box. Ranging from sea turtle conservation, to veterinarian programs, and from eco-friendly community development projects, to improving fresh water supply, this project in northern Nicaragua just about has it all! From simple acts of helpful kindness, to critical improvements in sustainable development, there are many opportunities to make a difference in the lives of the people of Jiquilillo.
