The moment everyone has been waiting for is finally here!!!

Registration for our 2021 Volunteer Program officially opens today! You can now book your sea turtle conservation adventure through our website!

Same great Adventure:
- One-week hands on experience working closely alongside SEATRU’s dedicated staff protecting nesting sea turtles at the Chagar Hutang Turtle Sanctuary on Redang Island in Terengganu, Malaysia
- RM500 for all Malaysian students and RM800 for public individuals (local/international)

What has changed this year:
- Registration, including payments can be made online via our website. Visit our website under the Volunteer Program tab, and read through our guidelines on how to book before registering!
- We have increased the number of pax per week, now up to 12 volunteers can stay at the research station each week (so that more of your friends can share the fun)!

At this time, due to the continuing CMCOs and RMCOs across the nation, we would still like to advise our Malaysian volunteers outside of Terengganu state to book their time slots from June onward, due to urgent travel restrictions.
If you have any other questions or concerns, you may reach us at our website under our Contact Us tab!

We are ready to safely and comfortably host our volunteers, and can’t wait to see you all at Chagar Hutang Turtle Sanctuary!

Take your best friend on an adventure, to infinity and beyond!
