      Ecology Project International (EPI) is hiring instructors to teach and lead

      leatherback sea turtles, which are the primary focus of study in our
      programs. EPI offers sea turtle conservation courses to both Costa Rican
      and International student groups (mainly from US). Additionally,
      international students explore rainforest ecology, participate in a
      reforestation project at a biological station, exchange with a local school,
      and enjoy an exciting whitewater rafting trip. For more detailed information
