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. 
  • Depending on the time of the year since turtles do not nest all year round, you may be identifying turtle species, collecting eggs, monitoring nests or seeing hatchlings get safely to sea.
