Sea Turtle Research & Rescue - Bali

Bali attracts over 3 million foreign tourists per year for it’s beautiful beaches, resorts, amazing food, culture and cheap shopping! And Turtles! But...

There are a total of 7 sea turtle species, 6 of which can be found in Indonesian waters. Currently, Sea Turtles are facing extinction, and you can do something to stop it!

This project gives you the chance to experience this magical place as well do something good with your time there being involved with preserving the endangered sea turtles and teaching English at a local school. 

Sea Turtles, also known as Green Turtles, are an endangered species and are currently being illegally trafficked and traded on the black market. At the rate that they are being slaughtered and sold, there will one day be no more sea turtles left. 

  • Work alongside a local team who are passionate about protecting the sea turtles from extinction!
  • You will be involved in research, feeding, and monitoring the sea turtles. 
  • You’ll also be able to become involved with the local community by assisting in teaching English or in environmental education at a local school. (No you don’t need to know how to speak Balinese). 

Other activities include:

 

  • - Collecting turtle information such as length of carapace, size of flippers, checking its weight etc.
  • - Turtle site construction work e.g. building extra turtle tanks, walls, painting etc. 
  • - Cleaning the beach
  • - Teaching turtle education at a local school
  • - Making garbage bins for the local area
  • - Create Turtle Education/Material/Lesson and Activities for local students at school/project site
  • - Become involved with Turtles/Environmental campaigns for the local area

Located on the charming island of Nusa Penida - a 45 minute speed boat ride from the mainland of Bali. 

Accommodation is in volunteer houses in the Banjar Nyuh village - with the beach practically at your doorstep! Live like a local and enjoy interacting with the locals and learning what the authentic Bali culture is all about. Be prepared to rough it a bit - but there is basic facilities at the volunteer houses including hot showers available, western toilets (one’s with seats) and basic Wi-Fi access - so the essentials, obviously. 

When?

The project operates all year round with a minimum stay of 2 weeks. During the school breaks you will work on the conservation site instead of teaching English. 

During nesting season you’ll have the chance to identify turtle species, collect eggs, monitor nests or watch the hatchlings get safety to sea (one of the most incredible things you could ever witness).

Accommodation, Food, Transfers from airport and back, IWH Travel Agent Services, Staff Support and English Speaking Coordinator.
