“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”

– Steve Jobs


Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia (TCS) is a small, young but dynamic organisation, with activities ranging from multi-disciplinary research projects to working with the local womenfolk to produce marketable batik-themed products. Our work-type and work-load vary throughout the year, from camping out at the riverbank and micro-chipping terrapins, to measuring newly-emerged terrapin hatchlings, to conducting Turtle Camps with students to taking guests on Turtle Discovery Trips to managing our social media sites to writing grant proposals and press releases.

We accept internship applications with a minimum stay of one month, which we believe, benefits both the intern and TCS. Please note that TCS does not provide any form of remuneration for intern positions.

We’re unable to accept many interns at the same time due to timing, housing availability, and social distancing SOPs. However, we have put together other options for you. These are conservation organisations that are also doing an amazing job in saving wildlife/turtles in the country.

Please contact the following organisations directly if you’re keen to participate in their programmes.

We wish you all the best!
