Sea Turtle 4

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 work camps take 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.Read more here

From Ego to Eco

Being at peace with nature and your surroundings, starts with inner peace. Achalam is an EcoAshram that offers people space to reflect in contemplation of their inner nature as they return to their grass roots of living in nature. The ashram was established in 2008 in the temple town of Tiruvannamalai better known for the sacred mountain Arunachala, that has drawn souls for centuries with its power to awaken people to their innate inner peace. The 'From Ego to Eco' workcamp will focus on engaging in local community work and volunteers will facilitate fun learning activities at the ashram for the local village children. The volunteers will engage in simple duties within the ashram, which include watering plants, growing vegetables, and participating in meal preparation. Every morning there will be meditation and yoga sessions as well as learning and reflective activities on different days. Read more
