The turtle conservation team in Bali were the absolute best! without them, I would not have enjoyed myself as much as I did, and I feel like I was able to help make a difference. The biggest impact my volunteering trip had on me was the people and culture of Bali, showing me new perspective to life. Do it, best decision I've ever made!

The organization of the trip was super good. The trip has been very active - we have seen and experienced a lot. Nevertheless, we could pull back and do our own thing if we wanted to. I would like to give special praise to our group leader Mike Mazurkiewicz. He was very well organized, always very nice and polite and also very interesting as a personality. I can definitely recommend this trip!
