Volunteer with Sea Turtle Conservation and Primary School Education Program in Bali
In Bali,$5.5 billion are left every year by millions of outsiders for 4.2 million Balinese. Bali is both an insanely rich island and a place for desolation and poverty. Hotels charge visitors high fees for a few nights in paradise, and poachers steal and kill sea turtles illegally, sell it to restaurants who sell turtle meat as an expensive delicatessen unethically. But the money never reaches the Balinese villages where families lack food, water, sanitation and basic infrastructure. Parents seek opportunities and education for their children, and ecologists seek volunteers who want to put their effort and teach communities that if they carry on slaying and killing turtles for money, soon there will be none left.
The Sea turtle conservation and primary school education volunteer project in Bali combines two programs into one. You will work within the marine conservation field with the sea turtles and within the Balinese education system by teaching Balinese children at a local primary school.
In the mornings, you will put your teaching clothes on and head to a local primary school to teach English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, or any a different language. It’s very important for children to learn to communicate with others, this can increase their future job prospects and expand their horizons. As the Balinese economy relies and depends on tourism, by sharing your language skills you will be opening doors to Balinese children.
In the day time you will also work in sea turtle Project. The sea turtle conservation project is a hands on project where you will be rolling up your sleeves and working with endangered sea turtle species. It’s important to protect, revive, and maintain the sea turtle populations, and even more important to collect their eggs and safely release the newborn turtles to nature. There are many sick and injured turtles that need help, and data to be collected. Your participation will help the sea turtles to carry on returning to Bali’s sandy beaches and to live another day.
