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. Meeting new people, working with my favourite animal and having such an amazing group of people around me were my favourite moments. Do it, best decision I've ever made!

Optional Extras


Turtle Conservation Project

The Turtle Conservation project is located on the charming island of Nusa Penida, a 45-minute speedboat ride from mainland Bali. The project is in its early stages, and you will work alongside a local team to help protect the endangered sea turtles of Indonesia. You will contribute to conserving the turtles by working at our turtle conservation centre. Depending on the time of the year (since turtles do not nest all year round), you may identify turtle species, collect eggs, monitor nests, or see hatchlings get safely to sea.
