This project focuses on bringing together groups of volunteers, skilled & unskilled, to work with and learn from local community members and local craftsmen. Together with these local partners, you will support sustainable human development by promoting volunteering and rural and responsible tourism in southern Thailand.
In this project, you will be volunteering your time and energy to protect endangered sea turtles in Thailand. You don’t need any special skills to be a volunteer, just enthusiasm and a willingness to lend a hand. Main activities will be monitoring nesting beaches in the morning, and observing the sea turtle feeding areas. Additionally you will help collect weather data, learn how to do tortoise and freshwater turtle audits, and work together with the community to raise conservation awareness among locals and visitors alike.
