Read this interview with Assistant Research Officer Rebecca to find out what life is like working in Costa Rica and why she chose to go there:
Having spent several years working with turtles I might be a bit biased but, for me, sea turtles are one of the most incredible animals there is. I don’t think I’ve ever felt more amazed and privileged than when I’m watching the intimate act of a sea turtle nesting or a hatchling taking its first steps.
You’ve probably heard about hurricane Otto and how the storm affected the northern part of Costa Rica and Nicaragua. Before the storm hit it was unclear if the Osa Peninsula was in danger, this is why our Frontier team got evacuated on an airplane after two weeks of heavy rain and no transportation in and out of Carate.
Living in the jungle isn't the most luxurious but it is worth it for all the fun you will have! These 5 fun facts will get you even more excited about the jungle!
Our Assistant Research Officer Bella Field has survived her first month in the jungle. Just like the rest of us it only took her a few seconds to fall in love with Carate. She tells us all about her experiences so far!
If you´re volunteering with Frontier in Costa Rica, you might want to do some traveling afterwards. But… where do you go? We've chosen four amazing places – based on our personal experiences, that you can easily get to from Puerto Jimenez.
Anyone who is leaving the project after a significant period of time will tell you that one of the main stresses of camp is the highly coordinated and deeply important activity of washing and drying laundry. Now, to the reader this task is one of the simplest household chores there is, but take away the washing machine, dryer and an environment devoid of humidity, you get a completely different situation.
The last two weeks at Camp Osita have been quite exciting and bizarre at the same time. At first we thought it was just the last bits of the rainy season – until we realized this was a bigger storm.
Our new camp has a brand new food menu! Have a look at the sort of meals we eat out in the jungle. It may be vegetarian but its all very delicious
