Win a Two Week Volunteer Abroad Trip to Malaysia

by DIWYY · 2 comments


Do It While You’re Young is excited to partner with Ecoteer to give you a chance to win a volunteer abroad trip in Malaysia!

For the first week you will have the opportunity to live on the most beautiful beach in the Perhentian Islands (FYI the Perhentian islands are famed to be the best in Malaysia). By day you will take a PADI Scuba Diving course (Open water, Advanced or Rescue) and by night you will help to protect nesting Green Sea Turtles. This is where you will learn about tropical coral reefs and their denizens and how you can protect.

In the second week you will live in the village on the small island. You will stay with the Ecoteer House Team. The aim of this week is to start to share your newly gained knowledge of the marine realm and share this with the local school children and villagers. Turtle eggs are a delicacy in Malaysia and are very expensive thus many of the local villagers either eat them or collect and sell them. Your help on this side of the project compliments the other side by educating the locals about turtles and conservation. You will also experience life in a Malay village and teach English, eco snorkelling and environmental awareness to the school children. This is the complete Perhentian Island Conservation Experience.

Volunteer Abroad Prize Includes:

  • Return boat transfer from Kuala Besut to Pulau Perhentian
  • Three meals per day
  • Dormitory with cold water shower and western toilet
  • 1 PADI Scuba Diving course
  • 1 Snorkel Tour
