Volunteer with Sea Turtles in Malaysia

Join us to make a difference in Malaysia helping vital sea turtle conservation efforts!

If you have been searching for sea turtle volunteer opportunities, then look no further! Volunteers at this sea turtle conservation project help collect data on the sea turtle population in the area with snorkel surveys. You will also help conservation efforts, by helping to locate turtle nests and relocate the nest to safe hatcheries to protect them from poachers.

And all this is done surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Perhentian Islands!

Volunteers help the project build their image database by taking photos of turtles during snorkel surveys. Volunteers also help with night patrols to locate nests and relocate them to the safety of the hatchery to protect them from poachers.

Why Globalteer?

As a UK registered charity, Globalteer is different than many other organisations who connect volunteers with delete projects around the world, as we are 100% not-for-profit, so the more money we raise, the more we can invest in helping the delete projects we work with.

By volunteering with us you will be helping established projects with long-term goals to bring practical and achievable solutions. All the projects we work with have been chosen by Globalteer because they are answering a genuine need, and are working towards making asustainable difference in their local community.

Because our projects have clear objectives and a demand for volunteers to help achieve these objectives, there will always be work for you to do - every volunteer has a vital role to play during their placement.

Where your money goes

The placement fee that we ask for not only covers the costs of organising your placement, but unlike most other organisations, a donation is always made directly to the project on behalf of each volunteer – no matter how short the placement. So not only will you be helping the elephants while volunteering, but your donation will support the welfare of the elephants and the sanctuary's long-term objectives in the years to come!

We don't charge a registration or application fee, and you are required to pay nothing until you are accepted and ready to commit to your placement. More than that, we clearly list everything that is included in your placement on our website, which as a minimum includes accommodation, transfer on arrival, in-country support, letter of reference (if requested) and orientation.

As a charity, we are legally required to ensure that all money we receive is used to achieve our charitable objectives, so you can be sure that every dollar donated by you will go towards a good cause!
