As a continuation of the Earth Month initiatives from last year in the Galapagos Islands, Contiki Holidays invited Mikael Daez, his videographer and brother Nicky Daez, and a selection of 11 other inspiring storytellers from around the world to travel to Costa Rica for our newest Contiki Cares partnership with The Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC).
From 29 March – 07 April 2014, the group teamed up on a VIP conservation trip, based on Contiki’s 12-day Costa Rica Unplugged itinerary, with Contiki’s sustainability partner Céline Cousteau – a documentary filmmaker,environmental activist and granddaughter of Jacques Cousteau.The Storytellers took to Torteuguero Beach for two nights to track leatherback turtles, protect their nests from poachers in the area and were lucky enough to witness the incredible nesting process of two leather back
They also experienced all that bio diverse Costa Rica has to offer in true Contiki fashion – zip lining through the rainforest, rafting through the rapids, taking a dip in the hot springs and touring the canals in hopes of spotting some of the beautiful wildlife native to the area.With the belief that storytelling has the powerful ability to inspire change, Contiki Holidays has released an inspiring short film of the Contiki Storytellers experience (www.contiki.com/storytellers).
To encourage viewers to share the video with their peers and raise awareness of the human dangers currently faced by sea turtles, Contiki Holidays has also pledged to sponsor a turtle as each 250,000 view benchmark is reached.
