Work with rescued sea turtles to rehabilitate them in Bali, a region surrounded by beautiful scenery. Educate others on the importance of ensuring this species' survival.
This project centers around a conservation organization which aims to spread conservation-based knowledge while assisting and caring for turtles. Volunteers have the opportunity to rehabilitate injured sea turtles and new hatchlings brought by local fisherman so that they may be healthy enough to be released back into their natural sea habitat.
Volunteers will not only play a vital role in rehabilitating injured sea turtles and nurturing young hatchlings, but may also be given opportunities to working on a seaweed farm, visiting the turtle conservation center, working at the turtle sanctuary and teaching children in local schools about turtle rehabilitation.
Volunteer tasks may include:
After a light breakfast you will head out to work on a specific project at the sanctuary. After a few hours you will have lunch and a bit of time to rest. The afternoon is will be spent in the community, generally teaching about the environment at a local school. By 5pm, you are back at the project to check on the turtles before dinner.
Common ways to spend free time in Bali are diving, snorkeling, or hiking the lush rice terraces and volcanic hillsides of the island of Nusa Penida. Optional program add-ons include and Yoga and Mind Week, a Sanur Beach Week, and a Bali Adventure Trek Week. Please note any additional fees for these activities are not included in the program fee.
Transportation from the Ngurahria International Airport is included.
In both orientation week and your time at the project, you will be sharing a room at the volunteer house with bunk beds. Each dorm will house about 2 to 8 volunteers and includes electricity, a kitchen and western style toilet facilities. From your accommodations, a 5 minute walk will take you to your project site.
