Impactful Internships in Costa Rica

One of the most biodiverse countries in the world, Costa Rica’s unflappable commitment to preserving the natural environment has paid off. Boasting an endless roster of environmental accolades, this pocket-sized country protects one-quarter of its wild lands, is the first country in the world to reverse deforestation and aims to be the first completely carbon neutral nation – all while contributing to the population’s prosperity.

On our Costa Rica Internship Programs, gain valuable work experience with local organizations in the small community of Nosara. Located in the northerly Guanacaste Province, Nosara is known for its sweeping beaches, world-class beginner surf breaks and sea turtles.

What Will I Do?

We work with local grassroots organizations dedicated to preserving Nosara’s environmental integrity, with opportunities to work on various internship programs. Work on conservation projects on a wide range of environmental issues, from environmental education to marine and sea turtle conservation – Nosara is one of the world’s largest nesting sites for the Olive Ridley turtle, with monthly nesting events bringing up to 100,000 turtles onshore.
