Throughout the expedition you will be immersed in various areas of conservation, community development and environmental awareness. You will also have time available to further explore the region and get to know your team of fellow international volunteers. Conservation projects may involve working at two turtle research and conservation centres with animal husbandry and habitat maintenance, biodiversity surveys in nearby National Parks, beach cleans, and tourist management. Community development and environmental awareness projects may involve environmental education with the general community, local schools, hotels and tour & dive operators, as well as English language teaching to National park rangers and the general community. We have been working in our local province of Phang Nga for several years, providing 1000’s of hours of classroom teaching. Your immersion in various projects is very much dependent on the needs of our project and our project’s partners, which changes seasonally: from November to March, you may be involved in coastal environment research and tourist education and managment. The rainy season of May to October sees more terrestrial work such as biodiversity surveying in nearby National Parks. Work with turtle research and conservation centres takes place year round, along with beach cleans and community education classes..
