Help save endangered species of animal on Sea Turtle 4 project in Mexico from 5th to 21st October

projects2016 MEX

Four of the eight sea turtle species in Mexico (all of which are endangered) come to nest on the coasts of Chiapas. The beaches where the project takes place are some of the 144 beaches in Mexico where the sea turtles come to nest, and they are also within the 22 beaches in Mexico where there is a high level of turtle nest looting. In an effort to rescue them, the sea turtle eggs as well as the recently born sea turtles, the sea turtle sanctuaries collect the eggs and rebury them in protected areas in order to keep them safe. Once they hatch, the sea turtles are recorded and set free under the projection of the sanctuary staff. The sanctuaries are open to the public and provide information about the sea turtles and the work that the conservation provides.

projects2016 sweden

Suderbyn is a small young international ecovillage on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea in Sweden. Since 2008, residents and volunteers have been building a low-impact permaculture ecovillage with their own resources, relying mainly on volunteerism. Suderbyn’s office hosts a range of NGOs and organisations, among which are Baltic Ecovillage Network and IAL, the Swedish branch of SCI. At the moment the community in Suderbyn consists of 12 adults of different ages, 4 of which are EVS volunteers. There are animals (cats, bees, chickens and ducks), a vegetable and herb garden and a geodesic dome on its way to further development as a greenhouse and biogas production unit.
