Summer Experiences: GVI – Wildlife Expedition in Costa Rica

Wildlife Expedition in Costa Rica


Join a team of international participants in the Kekoldi Indigenous Reserve on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast. Your hands on work will contribute to the long-term management and conservation of this stunning rainforest reserve.

This expedition is the essence of remote adventure. Live in the heart of the jungle surrounded by the natural beauty of Kekoldi’s rainforest-lined Caribbean beaches. Hike the jungle trails conducting biodiversity surveys, walk along the beach looking for evidence of sea turtles during turtle nesting season, check camera traps for footage of jaguars, and explore the rainforest canals noting important aquatic bird species.

Not only does this program offer you the opportunity to get involved in ongoing conservation efforts, but you will also be provided with the training and experience to grow professionally by mastering both transferable and technical skills. These include teamwork, intercultural communication, and best practices for recording biodiversity data.
