I am passionate about the environment and do everything I can to reduce my foot print. I am vegan, I recycle & reuse and I love volunteer work! Up until now I have only had the opportunity to volunteer locally; packaging food with FMSC, the Humane Society and picking up trash in my community. But I have come across the opportunity of a life time! So I am raising money to volunteer with Green Lion for four weeks over summer break and $3,000 will cover my entire trip. I want to go to Bali in Indonesia and volunteer on the sea turtle conservation project on the small island of Nusa Penida in June 2020; PLEASE help me make this a reality!
As a volunteer on the Turtle Conservation project I will have the opportunity to help protect the endangered sea turtles of Indonesia with the goal of increasing the turtle population within the area of Nusa Penida. I will have the unique opportunity to have a hands-on role in caring for the turtles housed at the conservation center; feeding and cleaning the turtles and the equipment and I will participate in beach clean ups and improvements to waste management.
I am also looking forward to visiting Southeast Asia as that is my ethnic heritage and I can't wait to explore my own culture that I feel so detached from; this will no doubt be the most meaningful experience of my short life but could quite possibly be the most memorable experience of my life!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read my campaign and consider donating!
