Explore the pristine blue waters and white sands of Ambalangoda and take part in an amazing volunteering opportunity of conserving sea turtles!

 

Our program is certified by the Sri Lankan government as the only disabled turtle conservation project in the country.

 

There are 7 species of turtles that live in the world and out of that, 5 species of turtles live in the Indian Ocean. Our program breeds and cares for 4 different species of turtles that live in the Indian Ocean: Loggerhead, Hawksbill, Green and Olive Ridley. There are around 30 disabled turtles living in the center and in a separate center we hatch hundreds of turtle eggs to be released to the ocean when born. The aim of this project is to conserve turtles by directly taking care of the turtles, enhancing awareness among fishermen and the communities regarding turtle conservation and increasing the number of turtles in the ocean by releasing baby hatchlings to the sea.

 

So, for a minimum stay of 1 week, come now and have this unforgettable and worthwhile experience!

Dagelijkse activiteiten

The activities change according to the beach weather conditions and the number of participants but spending time with these marvelous creatures is the main aim of participants' involvement.
This program requires your dedication and support. Cleaning of the turtles and their tanks at the turtle conservation center are the main things you must do. That is because it is vital to have a clean and hygienic center for these animals.
Typical activities during the week would include,
  • Feeding the turtles (every other day)
  • Cleaning the tanks
  • Cleaning the turtles
  • Cleaning the beach
  • Helping with the weekly release of over 100 newborn turtles into the ocean (depends on the weather and season).

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

During days of, volunteers have the opportunity to go sightseeing, spending some time on the beach, enjoying the fresh sea breeze, swimming and much more!

This project is located about in Ambalangoda which is a coastal town located in the Galle District, of the Southern Province of Sri Lanka. This little town by the ocean is a sweaty, workaday town, and not touristy. Ambalangoda is known as a Buddhist city in Sri lanka. Ambalangoda is the place where "Masks" originated in Sri Lanka during the days of the kings and this is still thriving sometimes but a bit modernized. The volunteer house is located 10 minutes’ walk away from the city center, where you can find anything you might need. The nearest ATM and supermarket are located a 10 minutes’ walk away from our accommodation.

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Bandaranaike International Airport
The volunteers need to fly into CMB (Bandaranayake International Airport). First; you will meet the project’s transfer coordinator. He will meet you at the meeting point (paging area) in the airport upon your arrival and arranges your transfer to our center in Kandy or Ambalangoda according to the program you have booked. You will need to get a SIM Card as well. After passing through customs, make sure you stay on the same floor. Our Coordinator will be waiting for you in front of this entrance with a sign displaying the name of the project. He/She will not move to find you as they have firm instructions. Due to the many different personal plans and return flight times people have, the project found it logistically simpler to send participants to the nearest bus station and allow them to make their own way; whether it is to do more travelling or return to the airport. A Transfer back to the airport is not provided.
Accomodatie

You will be accommodated in our center which is located a few meters from the ocean (Dormitory style). The beach is closer to the accommodation where you can hang out with fellow participants. Furthermore, there is a refrigerator which you are welcome to use to store food and beverages. Safety lockers are available to store your belongings. Please bring your own padlock to be used.

Slaapzaal
Eten & Drank

You will be provided with three meals a day on weekdays and two meals per day on weekends. The meals are mainly Sri Lankan food, consisting mainly of vegetarian dishes including rice and vegetables. You can eat out at any of the local restaurants.

Onze excuses, geen toegang op de project site
Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB) in Colombo. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Sri Lanka.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Sri Lanka biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Sri Lanka dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Sri Lanka.
