I visited the Pacuare project in May/June, and I got to see leatherbacks and help collect the eggs so they could be put in a hatchery. My favorite parts of this experience were night patrol and seeing leatherback babies hatch. However, there turtle work was what made it worth it to be here. The food was not good, nor was there enough of it. There was nobody actually in charge of the camp, though the research assistants did an admirable job of keeping things running. Disorganization seemed to be this particular project's specialty. I still recommend going to see the turtles, but go short-term only!
