Join the Turtle Conservation project and work alongside a local team to help protect the endangered sea turtles of Indonesia.
The Turtle Conservation project is located on the charming island of Nusa Penida, which is a 45-minute speedboat ride from mainland Bali. The project is in its early stages and you will work alongside a local team and help protect the endangered sea turtles of Indonesia. You will contribute to conserve the turtles by working at our turtle conservation center. 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.

Bali - Turtle Project

Weekly Schedule & Activities

Introduction Day
Your project starts with an introduction day on the first Monday including a tour of the area surrounding the accommodation, available facilities, cultural "do's and don'ts", safety concerns as well as some basic local language lessons.

Monday to Thursday
Your actual project work starts with a presentation about the Turtle Conservation project including a briefing which will help you understand the project guidelines. After that, you will start to engage in the typical activities you are supposed to do throughout your stay such as feeding the turtles, cleaning the tanks, collecting seaweed and catching live food for the turtles. In addition, you will also create turtle toys, clean the beach and provide medicine for injured turtles if present.

Friday
On Friday you will feed the turtles and get an amazing opportunity to release turtles to the sea, but please note that this opportunity is only if you are leaving the program this week. If you continue another week at the project, you will engage in the regular activities at the turtle conservation center. For those who are leaving the program, there is also a feedback session regarding the project. After lunch, all volunteers take part in activities such as feeding the turtles, cleaning tanks and measuring the turtles' growth.

Other Project Activities
Making garbage bins for the local area
Creating turtle or environmental campaigns for the local area
Releasing injured turtles after treatment and clean the private beach
Turtles site construction work such as an extra turtle tank or wall, painting the walls etc.
Collect turtle information such as length of carapace, size of flippers, checking weight etc.

Please note that the volunteer activities and schedule can change at any time based on the needs of the project, local conditions, the weather and unforeseen circumstances. In Bali, nesting season for sea turtles will be from September until April, year after year.

Normally, if the participants attend the program out of the nesting season , they will join the activities below:

Our Program activities: Normally, we educate all the new participants about the turtles and the purpose of the program. We also show them a Turtle documentary and an Orientation Video. In addition to the above, our coordinators are always available to give more information if they need.

The participants are required to clean the turtle tanks, scrub turtles, fillet and cut fish for turtle, feed turtles, collect crabs, clean the community area (beach, village), create awareness signboards to save the environment and turtles, make turtle toys, collect turtle information such as length of carapace, size of flippers, check its weight, etc. and release the turtles.

We treat them until they are strong enough to survive in the ocean and release it afterward. Because if we release them when they are very young, once they make it to the ocean, many of these young sea turtles rely on floating seaweed mats, called Sargassum, to hide from predators. It means the ocean is unsafe for them when they are too young. Moreover, we can not release them as soon as they hatch because they can not dive in the deep ocean and they can not find food for themselves. They have to eat whatever food is floating in the ocean. The sea turtles' favorite food is jellyfish. But a floating, clear plastic bag can look an awful lot like a jellyfish dinner. When sea turtles consume marine debris by mistake, it can get stuck in their stomachs and cause major damage.

All sea turtles are affected by ocean trash, by mistaking the trash for food, getting a flipper caught in a discarded six-pack ring or being unable to surface for air while accidentally stuck in a fishing net. For every sea turtle that hatches, only one out of 100 will survive to adulthood.

Furthermore, not only is a hatchery maintained in the center, but we also rescue turtles which are stuck in the fishnets or elsewhere. We treat them until they recover and then we release them.

Social Activities
On Monday evening we'll show you a documentary about turtles which will help you to widen your knowledge about these amazing creatures. On either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday you will visit an amazing location called the Crystal Bay with breathtaking views. Your local coordinators will decide the day. Thursday night will also be a special one because we enjoy a welcome and farewell dinner by a bonfire at the beach. This is a great opportunity to get to know the newcomers better and say goodbye to those who are leaving.

Evenings & Weekends
During the evenings the volunteers are generally free, and there are no program activities scheduled unless otherwise mentioned. Weekends are always free.

Day of Silence (Nyepi) is a Hindu ceremony reserved for self-reflection. This takes place from 06:00 on 25 Mar until 06:00 on 26 Mar 2020. On Nyepi Day the project as well as the airport, shops and businesses are closed, and everyone must stay at home.

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.

Optional Culture Week

This program can also include a Culture Week which is highly recommended but not mandatory - just inform your travel advisor if you wish to include it. Indonesia is one of the most interesting countries in the world for cultural learning and experiences, which means that this week is packed full of exciting adventures, cultural excursions and interactions.

During the Culture Week you will be participating in various activities to get you acquainted with the Balinese culture. You will study the Balinese language, and explore Ubud including the famous Monkey Street as well as the beautiful surrounding areas. Bali is renowned for its diverse and sophisticated art forms, such as painting, sculpture, wood carving, handicrafts and performing arts, so we'll have you challenge your artistic and creative side with traditional Batik painting. Another fun thing to try out is a Balinese cooking class. Finally, you will make a traditional flower offering and offer your creation at one of the most impressive Balinese temples: The Holy Tirta Empul Temple. We take a short spiritual tour around this famous temple, bathe in holy waters and pray for good luck. Evenings during the Culture Week and the weekend after are free unless otherwise mentioned.

Accommodatie

You will stay at the volunteer houses in the Banjar Nyuh village, located on the island and about 5 minutes from the harbour. Village life is quintessentially local and you will get a good chance to see typical life on the island interacting with the local people and practicing your new-found language skills. You must be prepared for a more basic standard of living on the island, with fewer shops and attractions available (bearing in mind the beach is practically at your doorstep)!

We provide all basic facilities at the volunteer house which includes shared bathrooms with a cold water shower and western toilets. You can expect to share a room with one to seven other volunteers of the same gender. There is WiFi available at the volunteer accommodation, however, the connection is unreliable so we recommend purchasing a SIM card with data for an unlocked mobile before starting work at the project.

All participants are expected to be environmentally responsible and to use all resources with restraint, especially water, paper and electricity. You will be expected to clean up after yourself, and to play your part to keep the accommodation neat and tidy.

Arrival Information
The project is located on the island of Nusa Penida which is a 45-minute speedboat ride from Bali.

If you are not participating in the Culture Week before the program starts, we recommend you arrive in Bali before 13:00 so that you can take the last ferry to Nusa Penida at 16:00 on the same Sunday. Thus you will be able to attend the orientation on Monday morning with all the other new arrivals. If you arrive later than 13:00 on Sunday, you have to arrange accommodation near Sanur harbour (Jl. Sanur Beach Street Walk, Sanur) (at own cost) and get a boat to Nusa Penida the following day. If requested, we can pick you up from the airport until 20:00 and drop you off at your accommodation on Sunday.

After passing through customs at the airport, make sure you stay on the same floor and follow the way to the arrival gate (walking through the duty free shop). Our representative will be waiting for you at the International Arrival Flight Information Center. Please look for your name board. You may need to wait for several participants to arrive before the group leaves the airport.

REMEMBER: In any case, let us know your plans. You must also inform us of any flight changes or emergencies as soon as possible.
Transfer Coordinator: +62 (0) 821 446 34202

Getting to the Project
It takes 5 mins to walk to the project from your accommodation.

Departure Information
The latest check-out time from the accommodation on the last Saturday is 11:00. Departure transfer is not included as due to the many different personal plans and return flight times, it's logistically simpler for you to make your own way. Our coordinator can help you with the different transportation options, but you will have to cover the cost.

Maaltijden

A variety of vegetarian food and fruit is served in 'food boxes' due to safety and health reasons (3 meals a day on weekdays, breakfast on Saturdays, and breakfast and dinner on Sundays).

Please inform us of any dietary restrictions or intolerances during your application. However, we need to stress the point that you should not expect to eat as you normally do at home. We will do our best to see that you are well taken care of, but also as a volunteer, there is a need to be flexible and accommodating to the local food.

Houd er rekening mee

ATMs
There are many ATM's in the center of Nusa Penida which is 20 minutes by car from the house. The ATM accepts ONLY Master Card. It does NOT accept Visa.

Internet Access
We have Wi-Fi at the volunteer house (however, the signal strength varies and is not very fast).

Local SIM Card
We highly recommend buying a cheap local SIM card for your stay in Indonesia for your own personal safety and for easier/cheaper communication with the staff and other participants. A SIM card is especially useful if you are traveling to the project on your own.
