Sea Turtle Protection in Costa Rica

The Missouri Atlas

by Sifan Ouyang

MU students will have a chance to interact with sea turtles in Montezuma and enjoy local culture with host families in San José during a two-week trip to Costa Rica during winter break.

“You can get a taste of eco-tourism and service project at the same time.” said Jacquelyn Sandone, faculty program director of MU’s global service program in Costa Rica.

According to the program website, students will engage in service projects, including sea turtle protection, while traveling in Montezuma, a city famous for its eco-diversity located near the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula.

The deadline to apply is Sept. 30, 2013. Find more information on the MU International Center’s website.
