    Check out Rustic Pathways programs in the Dominican Republic! Marine Life and Coastal Restoration Grab your snorkel gear and dive into a marine adventure to protect the coastlines of the Dominican Republic. Stay in stunning Bayahibe and work with FUNDEMAR, a NGO dedicated to the conservation of marine ecosystems. Learn about threats to local marine and terrestrial life as you gain hands-on experience in scientific conservation methods, including the construction of reef restoration structures, the monitoring of coral growth in a wet lab, and the rehabilitation of mangroves. On remote Saona Island, spend a night helping to protect sea turtles. In your downtime, swim in freshwater caverns, search for sea stars in natural pools, and fall in love with island life. Island Living and Eco-Service Begin your adventure in the sustainable tourism capital of the Dominican Republic, Jarabacoa. Work on service projects that benefit the ecosystems and individuals living in the mountainous region. Explore mangroves, reef formations, and marine wildlife at Los Haitises National Park and Samaná peninsula. Get your hands dirty as you work on ecological restoration projects and learn from experts and communities about the efforts to maintain the extensive biodiversity of the region. Visit hidden caverns to see ancient Taino cave paintings, and soak up the sun on some of the island’s most beautiful beaches.
