  • Length: 1 to 10 weeks

Although a small scale conservation operation, Lang Tengah Turtle Watch’s reputation and impact is enormous. Based in the east coast peninsular of Malaysia, Lang Tengah’s sea turtle volunteering program is among the best when it comes to community involvement. While volunteers all over the world come to join Lang Tengah, their team is made up of many who are native to this area. The local team members can help share their extensive insight and knowledge with volunteers.

Sea turtle volunteers with Lang Tengah will join nightly patrols, conduct nest inspections, and much more during their volunteer experience. Afternoons are intentionally free of activities to give volunteers time to themselves. Whether they choose to get involved in more work, or they decide to take part in adventurous activities such as jungle trekking, snorkeling, and cliff jumping, the choice is theirs!
