Saving Sea Turtles in 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.
6 month Elephant Internship in Thailand
Spend 6 months in the lush mountainous region of Northern Thailand around Chiang Mai, and contribute to conserving the Asian elephant by living and working with traditional elephant-keeping communities. The population of Asian elephants and their habitat is rapidly declining. With less than 1,000 left in the wild in Thailand and around 3,000 in captivity, this is one of very few viable alternatives to the unshakable reality of their domesticated future within tourist camps.

Compassion for Thailand
You will find yourself struggling to avert your gaze from this program located in Phang Nga, a province recognised for its stunning picturesque beaches and island oases in the southern region of Thailand. You will work in a supporting role with children (and potentially some adults) that are physically or mentally challenged, in the provision of rehabilitative activities and exercises in order to stimulate body & mind, and assisting in other areas such as health and hygiene education.
Saving Sea Turtles in Borneo
Travel to Borneo and participate with a turtle nesting and land coral reef conservation project. The dual focus of this project is to renovate the coral reefs that have been badly damaged due to 45 years of fish bombing and to help protect the endangered Green and Hawksbill Turtles. The turtles come to the island from May to September to nest. Working on this Island Coral Reef Conservation and Turtle Nesting project will help to increase the number of pelagic fish in the area.
