Make sure you don’t miss this stunning island on any visit to Asia!  Working on this project will enable you to help conserve and protect sea turtles in Sri Lanka and give them a better chance of survival. You’ll get involved with cleaning, feeding and releasing these adorable creatures as well as getting a real taste of local life working within the local community. You can lend a hand teaching conversational English that will help impoverished locals to earn more money and build a better future and as there is a great demand from neighbouring villages for teaching you will also be going further afield to local temples and centres.  The community centre at the project also helps to empower local women who come to the centre to weave and make crafts that they sell in local markets to help raise funds.
