Summer camps: Protecting sea turtles in Thailand

Summer camps: Protecting sea turtles in Thailand

Join our sustainable tourism conservation program for teenagers in Thailand, and become an active contributor to our sustainable development projects in the stunning Phang Na region. This program offers 15 to 17-year-old adolescents an opportunity to work under the guidance of international experts, selected for their experience in mentoring and motivating young adults.

As part of our nature-based sustainable tourism initiative, adolescents will work in a local turtle conservation center, run by the Royal Thai Navy, participating in the medical treatment and growth monitoring of green turtles, cleaning up reservoirs and collecting marine debris, including plastic waste on the beaches. Additionally, they will take part in school renovation work.

Beyond the nature projects, teenagers will engage in guided tours of the region, providing insights into local Thai culture, responsible tourism, and preservation by visiting several national parks and the city of Phuket.

Check out our brochure for the full itinerary of this program!

All of our programs, including this sustainable tourism conservation program, have short, medium, and long-term objectives that align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). This program is an opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment while gaining new experiences and learning about sustainable development. Don’t miss out on this unique adventure!
