Join STC for our 3rd Annual Sea Turtle Expedition to Cuba!

STC and Holbrook Travel are working together again to bring you another incredible Sea Turtle Expedition to Cuba! From July 1st – July 8th, 2017 you can join some of STC’s sea turtle experts and take part in green sea turtle conservation efforts, all while experiencing the beautiful culture and landscape of Cuba.

Led by STC’s David Godfrey and Dan Evans, the expedition will take participants throughout the western coast of Cuba, stopping in Havana, the Guanahacabibes Peninsula and Viñales.  Participants will have the opportunity to witness the amazing nesting process of green sea turtles and work alongside biologists collecting data.

Last year, STC equipped two green turtles with satellite transmitters.

 Program Highlights

In addition, participants will enjoy activities such as a walking tour of the historical city of Havana, birding in the ecologically-rich Guanahacabibes Natural Park, and a visit to a local cigar and guarabita rum factory in the picturesque town of Viñales.
