Hi, my name is Serena! I am a college student planning to major in conservation biology. I was accepted to volunteer in Bali, Indonesia through International Volunteer HQ for six weeks, starting in June of 2022! While this is a bit in the future, I am hoping to start raising money now to ensure that I am able to go! I love to volunteer and make a difference, and I have always wanted to travel to Bali.
After the first week of orientation, I will be spending two weeks in the environmental education program. Your donations can help me educate the children in Bali about the importance of protecting the environment and how they can help!
I will then be working on the turtle conservation project in Nusa Penida for three weeks. Your donations will help me feed and clean the turtles, as well as aide in conservation efforts such as beach clean-ups and waste management improvement! Six out of the seven species of sea turtles live in Indonesia's waters, and all of them are classified as vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered. That is why this program is so important and why I am participating in it!
I understand that the amount that I am asking for is a lot, and I do not expect to receive all, or even any of it! I am thankful for any donation that I get! The donations will go towards my flight, registration fee, program fee, travel insurance, visa, and some personal expenses. Thank you so much!! <3
