Conservation and Environmental Projects in Bali, Indonesia from US$250

Company : International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)
Activity: Conservation Volunteer Projects
Country: Indonesia
Duration: 1 week to 6 months
Approx Costs: 250 to 2000 $ Dollars (US)

Bali is well known for its astonishing beauty and greenery. Unfortunately, with rapid development and the rise in tourism, it is evident in certain areas the detrimental impact this has had on the local environment. Apply to help.

Plastic water bottles and plastic food wrappers are of great concern and you will often see people simply throwing these on the ground, as food in Bali was traditionally wrapped in biodegradable banana leaves. The relationship between humans and the environment is an important part of Balinese culture and the aim of this project is to instill environmental education in the children at a young age, imparting your message in a fun and dynamic manner.

There is a need for volunteers with strong initiative on this program as volunteers are expected to arrive with their own idea of what they wish to focus on. The emphasis is on “hands on” techniques – getting the children out and about in nature and working together. Campaigns can include cleaning up the local school, village and rivers, or educating children about recycling however, volunteers are certainly not restricted to these and are encouraged to be creative.

Volunteers spend 2 hours each morning planning their campaign and visiting a variety of schools around the Ubud area in the afternoon. Please note that many of the schools in which volunteers work are under resourced and while basic materials can be provided, volunteers will need to bring any specialized resources they may need. Volunteers who do not actively plan a campaign will spend the majority of their time teaching English.
